Call it Rosedale or call it South Broadway but be sure that you keep an eye on the area where The Post Chicken and Beer launched earlier this year and where Morning Collective will unleash early next month.
Brainchild of executive chef and partner Joseph Strelnik, former executive chef at Snooze, the coming attraction aims, as its name suggests, to hook in the am crowds and brunch warriors. Major offerings include "Daily Breads," pancakes and French toasts made from scratch and have a molten center (think stuffed s’mores and pistachio tres leches); Benedicts, with the stacked three lil pigs with coffee-braised pork belly being a highlight; and Bowls such as the Healthy Bowl, with seasonal veggies, olive oil roasted breakfast potatoes, organic greens, two poached cage-free eggs and pistachio pesto. The menu is even more expansive and brings everything from corned beef hasg to egg white omelets.
"It was important to me to create a menu that serves today’s diners well," said Strelnik. "Our guests may have gluten sensitivities, or be extremely health conscious. We want them to know they can still enjoy a delicious breakfast or brunch out with friends, without impacting their diets."
Morning Collective offers a robust brunch beverage program through its signature "Sunrise Elixirs" menu, utilizing local wines, beers and spirits, including Mile High Spirits, Laws Whiskey, Infinite Monkey Theorem and Black Project beer. Non alcoholic sunrise elixirs are also an option.
A highlight of the restaurant is its unique ice program, which includes house-made horchata ice, strawberry ice, wildflower ice, beet root ice, dark chocolate ice, coffee ice, tomato ice, vanilla ice, and of course, Morning Collective’s signature bacon ice.
When the 2160 S. Broadway eatery launches, it will be open daily for breakfast and brunch, from 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
