Brunch at Print Works – Greensboro NC
My theory is that if you get up early on Sunday, whether it’s for church or a morning yoga class, you should be rewarded with brunch. Since I cook a lot on Friday and Saturday, I don’t do much on Sundays so we typically go out for brunch. This week was Natalie’s birthday and she chose one of our favorite spots, Print Works Bistro at the Proximity Hotel.
Many times, hotel restaurants are ok, but not something you would go out of your way to find. Print Works, is not that kind of restaurant. It is one of our favorite places in town for lunch, dinner or brunch. Their menu changes every few weeks and spotlights whatever is fresh or in season.
You will always find a quiche on the menu for lunch or brunch, and whatever ingredients they add, it is so tall and creamy. I don’t know how they get it so smooth with a perfect flaky crust. Today’s was my favorite, just smoked bacon and cheese. Natalie got the vanilla custard challah french toast. While my quiche was perfect, her’s may have been the best choice. Just slightly sweet with a crunchy exterior and not too mushy inside. It didn’t even need syrup. I just had to ask what they sprinkled on the outside, and was told, pumpkin spice and cinnamon. It was perfect for this rainy Sunday. Mike got his favorite, they call it hash, but don’t let that discourage you. Two poached eggs on perfectly sautéed potatoes.
Part of what makes their food so good is that they start with top rate butter. I am guessing european or local, but one with a higher fat content. Then they use as much local food as they can find. If brunch isn’t your thing, try them for lunch or dinner. The chef is always finding new and interesting ways to serve vegetables and entrees. If you are staying at the hotel, you are in for a treat, you won’t have to leave to get some of the best food in Greensboro.
