Drunk Brunch: Salt & Pine

Written by on March 14, 2016 in Bars, Downtown - No comments

Salt and Pine Drunk BrunchSalt & Pine is the latest concept from the Grow Restaurants group, which also owns Harvest Pizzeria and The Sycamore. The downtown restaurant opened in November with what it calls “chef-driven food,” which I would think is… all restaurant food? Whatever “chef-driven food” means, it includes a drunk brunch, and of that I wholeheartedly approve.

Salt & Pine has five morning cocktails on the brunch menu. I enjoyed the Pamplemousse: Watershed Four Peel Gin, grapefruit, Lillet Rosé, Campari, lime and Prosecco. It was garnished with a skewered gummy bear, which I took as some sort of message from the bartender, so I’m watching my back. They also have a nicely balanced Bloody Mary with house-made mix and Watershed vodka; a temptingly sweet “Coffee & Cream” drink with Watershed Bourbon Alvear Crème, Sherry, coffee, whipped cream and chocolate shavings; and a “Ginger” drink with Watershed Vodka, lime, ginger bear and an Alpine Amaro float. I loved seeing all Watershed spirits used – drink local!

From the food menu, the Fried Chicken Biscuit Sandwich was calling my name: a massive, juicy, breaded chicken breast on a biscuit that could barely contain its enormity, topped with tabasco honey butter and pickles. Salt & Pine’s brunch menu also includes griddle cakes, french toast, white cheddar grits, salmon benedict and a breakfast burrito, plus a few lunch dishes.

Salt and Pine is located at 250 S. High Street in downtown Columbus. Brunch is offered Saturday and Sunday from 11am–3pm.
