Build-Your-Own Eggs Benedict
This 20-year-old Tucson institution launched its Sunday brunch earlier this year, and the menu did not disappoint. For a mere $20, hungry brunchers can get an entrée--ranging from prime rib to a special spinach salad--coffee or tea, all the pastries you can eat and a beverage (our favorites vacillate between the bloody mary and the mango bellini). But one of these entrées stands out above the others: the build-your-own eggs benedict. You pick a base (English muffin or blue corn cake), a meat (turkey, Canadian bacon, mesquite-smoked bacon, pancetta or salmon), one or two veggies (asparagus, poblanos, avocado, roasted tomatoes, tomatoes or spinach) and top it all off with one of three hollandaise sauces (regular, chipotle or tomato basil). And then you're in brunch heaven.
