If you are looking for a place to have Sunday Brunch, look no further… J. Alexander’s in Raleigh, NC has a delicious brunch menu to satisfy your taste buds. When you walk in the restaurant you are immediately swept into a contemporary open space with stylish décor. There is available outdoor seating in addition to the indoor dining area. I had a party of thirteen and J. Alexander’s handled us with the best quality service. Everyone had a great dining experience and can’t wait to go back.
I really enjoyed the open restaurant layout. You can look directly into the kitchen and see your food being prepared. J. Alexander’s serves wood-fired American Food. It’s definitely a great location for pictures because we took a ton inside and outside. We even ventured into the restroom and took “bathroom” selfies. The bar is very open right next to the wine room that you can look directly into because it’s a glass room. I thought that was a great touch to the whole décor.
There is a full-service bar available with an amazing selection of wines served by the glass and bottle. My cocktail of choice was a Mimosa. For starters we had Smoked Salmon Dip, Deviled Eggs and Sushi. It was time to order Brunch and I couldn’t decide between the Brunch Burger and Belgian Waffle. I opted to order the Brunch Burger. It’s their classic cheese burger topped with Canadian and Applewood Bacon. Finished with an over easy egg, accompanied with breakfast potatoes and fresh salad.
Everything about the Brunch Burger was PERFECTION! It’s the first time I’ve eaten a burger with an egg on it so I was being adventurous and I loved it! I couldn’t help but admire what everyone else was ordering as well. Our table had Eggs Benedict with Grilled Tomato and Avocado, Huevos Ranchero and Croque Madame. Our neighboring table had Lemon & Ricotta Hotcakes, Belgian Waffles and West End Quiche. It’s safe to say we ordered one of every entrée on the Brunch Menu between all of us.
We were absolutely stuffed after the starters and brunch entrees but, couldn’t resist the desserts that were mentioned. Chocolate is my weakness so it’s not surprising that I went straight for the Chocolate Fudge Cake with fudge and vanilla ice cream. I had to look on in envy as my friend’s indulged in the triple layered carrot cake with vanilla bean cream cheese icing, chopped pecans and caramel. I have a food allergy to carrots and nuts. That cake was definitely a conversation piece. I was totally jealous! The cappuccino was a treat as well.
Overall, we had an amazing time having Sunday Brunch at J. Alexander’s. They have a lunch and dinner menu that will make your mouth water. Whether you visit for, brunch, lunch or dinner you are in for a treat! The Wine Room has over 600 bottles of wine to choose from.
