This last Sunday we decided to go eat brunch at the restaurant that Alex works at called Vintage 2298, which is an upscale restaurant that is open for dinner every night except Tuesdays. They also have brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.
Alex had been saying we should come for brunch and he works during that time, so we made reservations. When we got there, they sat us at the table closest to the kitchen and everyone knew we were Alex’s parents.
He came out and talked to us before he went back and prepared our meal. I got this picture of him with the kitchen in the background.
Alex treated us with a free charcuterie board (not on the brunch menu).
When they brought that out we had just about finished the appetizer we has ordered; Alabama Blue Crab Claws.
I got the Hickory Grilled Mississippi Red Fish. Rob got the Southern Vintage Breakfast.
Our waitress brought out the dessert menu out, but before we could order, Alex brought out the peanut butter torte and creme brule. Alex came and sat with us while we finished our desserts.
After we had paid, Alex brought us back to the kitchen and showed us around, while also introducing us to everyone. Loved seeing him in his element as well as seeing how much people really like Alex. We finished our time there with a look at the Butcher Shop, where they sell fresh cut meat and pretty much anything you would need for a meal. They sell their homemade pimento cheese and other dressings and sauces that they make there.
Alex gave us both hugs and we left him to it, since it was about closing time and he needed to go help close the restaurant. This was a really special time that I’m thankful for.
If you’re in the Auburn area and are looking for a really nice restaurant, I highly recommend it.
