This Weekend: Whiskey And Waffles Brunch At Ela

So Scott Schroeder and Jason Cichonski should be getting pretty used to cooking together at this point.

I mean there was that Bromance Collaboration Dinner they did together in February, and the first Whiskey and Waffles brunch the two of them did last year. Now they’re getting together again to do a second drunken brunch which will pair everyone’s favorite breakfast foods (waffles, bagels, bacon, shrimp salad) with everyone’s favorite breakfast beverage (whiskey).


This Sunday, the two chefs will come together at Ela to put out a menu of inspired breakfast foods. Starting at 10:30am and going until 2:30pm, the special brunch will run you $35 for four courses. Reservations are recommended but not required and, for an additional $20, you can even get each course paired with specially-designed breakfast cocktails (like a Laphroaig-and-rye Bloody Mary or a shot of bourbon).

And yes, of course we have a copy of the menu. Right this way...

This Week: Bromance Collaboration Dinner At Ela

Scott Schroeder is having a busy season. We just wrote about him throwing in with David Ansill for an upcoming collaboration dinner at Bar Ferdinand, and now we’ve also got word that, two days from now, he’s going to be in the kitchen at Ela with one of his besties, Jason Cichonski, doing a totally different collaboration dinner.

This one is actually called the Bromance Collaboration Dinner, a “bromantical evening with Scott Schroeder and Jason Cichonski.” It’s happening on Wednesday, February 12, at Ela. Seats are $50 per person (with an optional $20 drink pairing), reservations are required, and the menu is… Well, just check it out for yourselves after the jump.

The Revisit: Ela

How do you keep the spark alive?

Restaurants face the same question that haunts many a marriage—only, with restaurants, it comes ‘round a whole lot sooner. If spouses can hope for seven years before the proverbial itch begs scratching, restaurateurs are lucky if they can make it past the first anniversary.


That thought chorused through my head during a recent meal at Ela—repeating like the 90-minute loop of down-tempo indie-rock throbbing softly in the background of Jason Cichonski’s Queen Village resto-bar.
