My New Favorite Spot for Brunch

By Denise Whallon Dixon

Brunch at Crop Bistro & Bar is an absolute must!! I went with my family of 5 last weekend. Finding a place to please the grown-up and my three kids isn’t easy. Not only were the adults happy, the kids were happy!! Sundays, Crop serves an all-you-can-eat buffet on the same scale as their amazing dinners. I went back 3 times to load my plate up with more of their out-of-this-world lobster salad. Crab legs, seafood, Cajun crawfish in coconut sauce, and smoked salmon were piled high on the seafood buffet. For meat-lovers, beef brisket, perfectly cooked prime rib, bacon, and sausage await. A gorgeous assortment of freshly baked bread, muffins and croissants that I didn’t have room for. And the most perfect, beautiful fruit you’e ever seen. “Ah, the most delicious raspberries in the world,” sighed my 11 year old sighed.

George gets a secret from the chef.

When the Chef Steve came to the table, my 10 year old begged for chicken recipe. To his surprise and delight, Chef treated him to the recipe and his super secret ingredient for his marinade AND gave him a container of spice rub. He was in heaven!!!

As crowded as it was, service was amazing. An empty plate on our table last about 2 seconds before whisked away, Brunch is $39–which I realize sounds a little steep but is absolutely worth it when you see what they offer. This isn’t your usual eggs and bacon brunch. I could not even try everything because the selection was so huge!! The price for adults includes a complimentary Mimosa or Bloody Mary and unlimited juice and coffee. $20 kids. The brunch runs every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Crop Bistro, 2537 Lorain Avenue, Cleveland.
