Dining With Denise Neil

Newport now serves brunch, including Mothers' Day

Stuffed French toast is among the brunch options at Newport Grill's new Sunday brunch.There’s a new Sunday brunch player in town, and you and mom can check out a amped-up version of it this weekend.

Newport Grill, the fine dining seafood restaurant that opened late last year at 1900 N. Rock Road, recently added a Sunday brunch, served from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Theirs is set up a bit differently from most.

On a typical Sunday, the restaurant will offer all-you-can-eat access to a cold bar, which features, among other things, shrimp, oysters on the half shell and more. A dessert bar also is included.

Diners then are able to choose from a list of plated, composed brunch meals, ranging from stuffed French toast to eggs Benedict (one version is served atop crab cakes.) A few of the restaurant’s non-breakfasty entrees are offered among the options, too, including a chicken dish.

Normally, the brunch is $18 for adults and $12 for children. This Sunday, for Mother’s Day, the restaurant will add several things to the usual offering, including crab claws on the cold bar. This time, the price is $25 for adults, $12 for children ages 4-12.

For more information, call 316-636-9555.
