I’m thinking this Sunday will be busier for brunches than most other Sundays. For one thing, most people have Monday off so they won’t mind lingering over a meal with a few extra mimosas or bloodies with friends.
And this is a particularly good Sunday for you to try the brunch at TR Fire Grill with your best friend. That is, your dog.
That’s because this Sunday, and every last Sunday of the month, is a special version of TR’s Yappy Hour Sunday Brunch. Dogs are welcome on the patio of the Winter Park restaurant at all times, but on the last Sunday of the month the folks from Judy’s Pet Rescue set up next to the patio and bring along some of their adorable adoptables.
So if you go to brunch for a little hair of the dog, as they say, you could wind up with the whole hound.
And even if you go and leave dogless, the brunch at TR Fire Grill will certainly have you wagging your own tail.
I visited TR last month and enjoyed the Southwest Eggs Benedict, with a hash of black beans and bacon and mashed avocado beneath beautifully poached eggs doused with lemony hollandaise.
I also got to sample a companion’s Morning Meatloaf, a sort of open-faced sandwich dressed for breakfast with a sunny-side up egg and jalapeno hollandaise.
For something a little different, try the chocolate dipped Wonuts, a hybrid of donuts and waffles.
And during the Yappy Hour Brunch all doggies will be treated with house-made biscuits.
TR Fire Grill’s patio is a pleasant place to dine, even without the doggies in attendance.
TR Fire Gill is at 1035 N. Orlando Ave. (at Lee Road), Winter Park. Yappy Hour Brunch is served Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. The phone number is 407-708-3600.
