Mother's Day at Millennium

My favorite restaurant, Millennium, only opens its doors for something besides dinner one day a year -for Mother's Day Brunch.  Mother or no mother (our group today was mom free), it is an experience not to be missed.  Today we started with treats "Baked by the Kids":

This picture happened after the cinnamon sugar beignets were already eaten, but the other stand out on this plate of sweet starters was the chocolate chip coffee cake.  Incredible.  I would have ordered a loaf to go had the option existed.  And that maple butter would be good on just about anything.

Next up was a salad that was good but not noteworthy.  But then,

The tempeh benedict was simply awesome.  Savory tempeh on toast with perfectly cooked asparagus and yummy sauce....mmmmm.....   potatoes were simply the icing on the cake.  And speaking of cake...

This brownie with sea salt caramel sauce and vanilla bean ice cream was outrageous.  A more decadent ending than is normally found at brunch, it was still a welcome treat, not to mention sinfully delicious.

You can be sure that we'll be at Millennium for Mother's Day brunch as long as they keep serving it up, as it's so fun to see what Chef Tucker can do outside of the dinner realm.  Turns out, he's pretty good at cooking at all times of the day.  :)

Here's hoping your Mother's Day was lovely as well.  Next up, some unique eats in my 'hood.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend, everyone.
