Beginning on January 21st, the bright and colorful Urban Butcher in Silver Spring, MD began offering a delicious new bottomless brunch. The decadent meal, aptly named the Endless Carnivore Brunch, is $45 per person and will be offered on Sundays at 11am, with the last seating at 3pm. The Endless Carnivore Brunch includes three generous food courses and unlimited mimosas and not-to-be-missed lavender margaritas (beautifully made with homemade simple syrup).
The first course includes grilled rustic bread with whipped lime butter, house charcuterie, and beef enchiladas. The enchilada is a highlight---packed with juicy and flavorful beef and veggies. The charcuterie plate offers a nice variety with chicken sausage, pistachio cranberry pate, dante sheep cheese, chorizo, salami, pork coppa, and pork lomo.
For the second course, each person has the choice of malted pancakes with honey butter and lemon syrup; thick French toast with apple butter and maple syrup; an omelette with melted smoked gouda; or fried eggs. These are served alongside a picturesque large butcher offering for the table of roasted meats, sausages, home fries, and salad. The meat platter includes roasted steak cooked with rosemary, onions and garlic; roasted turkey; smoked ham; pork sausage; and chicken sausage. While all of the meat choices were amazing, if you find yourself getting full, be sure to reserve room for the steak and smoked ham.
With the Endless Carnivore Brunch, you will want to forget your New Year’s resolutions and dig into the last course! It is really a special treat: Urban Butcher donuts. The donuts are warm, light, fluffy, and coated in sugar. They are perfect for pulling apart and dipping into the accompanying Nutella whipped cream. The staff of the Urban Butcher shared that they often start their brunch with the donuts and eat the other courses in reverse. (While it is unclear if this is an option for a normal patron, it is telling of just how delicious these donuts are!)
Reservations for Urban Butcher can be made on OpenTable. If you want to have a delicious, lazy Sunday, they also offer a $35 early supper, which includes house charcuterie, steak frites, a drink, and dessert. This can be paired with happy hour that begins at 4pm on Sundays.
This is the perfect restaurant for anyone looking for a high-quality meat-based meal in a lively restaurant served alongside amazing drinks. Make The Endless Carnivore Brunch your next Sunday Funday treat!
