Big hat, check. Big sunglasses, check. Breezy sundress, check. Sexy wedges, check. Layered pearls draped around your neck, check. You know the brunch drill. Now blend a fabulous menu that includes Belgium waffles, almond croissants, lemon-ricotta griddle cakes – just to name a few of the numerous dishes that will surely compliment your idea of the perfect dish. 31 is Lombardi’s latest venture, a cocktail lounge that is located above Bistro 31. Now, prepare to pair your meal of choice with a signature Bloody Mary or create your own champagne cocktail. The options are truly endless. The service is wonderful, and as you sit on the patio with your gorgeous group of girlfriends, you just might finally glance down at your pretty little watch and feel a bit guilty that your brunch time has lasted longer than the few hours you had carved out.
But you don’t. And that’s a good thing, because sometimes you require some much needed down time, great food and early cocktails with a gigantic side of champagne-spraying. Yes, you just read that correctly. And for that, you’ll come here again, and again…
Allow me to introduce you to this European-style (in every sense of the term) terrace bar with a bubbly-drenched Sunday brunch party, that opened on Father’s Day. Picture the red tiled terrace, walls covered in shrubbery and a champagne room complete with pulsating French music, and more champagne-spraying than the sideline and locker room celebrations at the Super Bowl.
On your drive home, you will have time to think of the perfect excuse to the question when you arrive home: “So, why do you smell like bubbly?”
