Drunk Brunch: Chez du Bon [NOW CLOSED]

Written by on February 24, 2014 in Bars - 1 Comment

chez du bon drunk brunchI’ve been a big fan of restaurateur Yavonne Sarber’s downtown restaurant concepts for some time now – in fact, deNOVO was the very first Drunk Brunch article. And Manifesto is a scotch lovers mecca, and the perfect opening act to a show at the next door Ohio Theatre.

So when Columbus King of Breakfast Nick Dekker mentioned that Sarber had opened a new restaurant, a fancy French bakery with brunch, I was pretty much out the door and on my way before I finished reading his sentence.

Chez du Bon is located halfway between Manifesto and deNovo, with an unassuming entrance leading into a charmingly modern purple, silver and green space. The new restaurant was empty except for a group of women celebrating a birthday and having the time of their lives.

chez du bon mimosaOur server offered the choice of brunch beverages: bloody mary with candied bacon, or mimosa with a hint of elderflower liqueur. The fresh squeezed, St. Germain kissed mimosa was a delight. I also enjoyed a classic French 75 from their regular cocktail menu, which contains several brunch-worthy beverages like the Ultra Violette (gin, orange syrup, orgeat, egg white).

I can’t remember the last time I looked at a food menu with so much genuine regret that I wasn’t a cow with four stomachs so I could eat everything offered. Double smoked bacon and gouda quiche. Duck confit with garlic sausage and sweet potato hash. Chocolate ganache coated profiteroles.

chez du bon chicken crepesI managed to settle on chicken and – no waffles here – crepes, with a mound of fried chicken atop crepes coated in a siracha maple glaze, topped with sautéed spinach and sprinkled with thick chunks of heavenly ham. I also sampled their Croque Madame, a personal favorite brunch sandwich, which was as tasty as any I’ve ever had.

As one of the pricier drunk brunch spots I’ve visited ($10-$22 for an entree), the atmosphere and food warrant this a drunk brunch destination for a special occasion.

Brunch at Chez du Bon is served Saturday and Sunday from 9am-3pm. Chez du Bon is located at 122 S High Street.
