SIMPLY STELLAR BRUNCH AT FEATHER AND WEDGE!

With rainy weather predicted for Saturday and Father’s Day celebrations Sunday, this weekend would be the perfect time to try the wonderfully delicious weekend brunch fare at Feather and Wedge. My girlfriend Claudia and I went last Saturday and it was delightful in every way. The decor is exquisite (I think I mentioned that in a previous post) and now with Chef Doug Papows at the helm, the food, and welcoming wait staff, make for a dining trifecta of fabulousness.

I regret to say that the photos that I took of our lovely brunch went the way of my faulty memory card. Memory cards occasionally wear out, and usually at the worst times. Dear reader, you don’t need photos of the food, just go, you’ll have a wonderful dining experience, we sure did!

The menus change everyday. Brunch is not posted on the Feather and Wedge website, but you can imagine how delicious are the brunch offerings by checking out tonight’s dinner menu.

  • Looks like a wonderful place and with the weather that was a very good move. I like the tools wedges you show to as I seem to recall as a young lad around some of the quarries or pits as we called them some were left behind in the granite. A lot of harbors had granite blocks with big metal hook eyes with chain links to moor up to as well! The granite always told the stores of wedges and even holes that may have been drilled for dynamite what works of art so a great name for this restraint too feather and wedge! 🙂 Dave
