Ranked: The Definitive, Irreproachable List Of The Best Brunch Dishes

Brunch is now served at Nick's in Old City

When we have nothing else to argue about here at Foobooz World HQ, we make fun of manatees. But when even the manatees are no longer amusing, we debate the merits of brunch.

This is saved as a conversation of last resort not because we don’t all agree on the elements of a great brunch (liquor, pancakes, salt, liquor, soft light), but because we have strong opinions that are, mostly, all the same. Brunch, while not an American invention, was perfected by Americans. We do brunch better than almost anyone, and in Philadelphia, brunch is treated almost like a religion–a required and formalized bit of tableside worship done every weekend by thousands of us, only with bloody marys and bacon working the weekly magic of transubstantiation.

So anyway, brunch? It’s something we think about a lot. And here, we have put together a ranked list of the best (and worst) brunch dishes in order of greatness and necessity–not by specific restaurant (the greatest brunch, often, is the one that’s in front of you), but by archetypal dish. And it all begins with…

Got brunch plans for this weekend? Well if you don’t, let us make a late suggestion. Root–the new-ish tapas and wine bar in Fishtown–just launched a brunch program last weekend. It’s actually a very straightforward list–lots of eggs, some lemon-ricotta pancakes, french toast, a cauliflower salad for those of you being healthy and lots of bacon for those of you who aren’t–but that’s not a bad thing. And the Turkish eggs and duxelle burger both sound more than a little bit awesome.

Anyway, we’ve got the full menu after the jump. Check it out below.
