Dining With Denise Neil

Breakfast at The Anchor

Remember a few weeks ago when I was complaining about discussing the fact that Wichita didn’t have many hip and fun options when it came to having breakfast/brunch out?

That might be about to change. It appears that The Anchor, led by executive chef Ben George, is going to reintroduce weekend breakfast starting on Saturday, and George has created a lot of delicious sounding dishes, including the above tuna nicoise salad — perhaps not a traditional breakfast option but tantalizing nonetheless.

Starting this weekend, breakfast will be served from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturdays and 9 a.m. to noon on Sundays. Among the other options on the menu — a smoked salmon and sweet potato hash, an eggs Benedict made with smoked pork loin, a Philly cheese steak omelet, blackened catfish with wilted spinach and eggs, crab cakes and more.

ALSO: My dining story for this Friday focuses on The Anchor’s growing reputation as a place to get good food, not just a place to drink mass quantities of beer. I’m writing it now, and it’ll be online later this afternoon and in the paper on Friday. If you sign up for my Wichita A La Carte newsletter, which comes out this afternoon, it’ll land in your e-mail inbox and you won’t even have to TRY to find it.
