Best Thing We Ate This Week: Seasonal Brunch

Just because the holidays are over doesn't mean we can't remember how tasty they were.

This week's Best Thing We Ate This Week takes us back in time a bit — back to when the Christmas-New Years rush was just about to set in and I had found a bit of time to relax over Sunday brunch at Birmingham's .

I enjoy trying out a restaurant's seasonal menu, particularly in the winter when things tend to be full of spices, butter and warm flavors. That means I had to try one of Commonwealth's December specials, their Cinnamon Apple French Toast. Made with hearty challah and Macintosh and Granny Smith apples and then smothered in a caramel-cider sauce, this dish reminded me of those sweet, slightly-warmed days of autumn. It was a good thing.

You can check out Commonwealth's constantly-changing menu, as well as their monthly specials, on their website. You never know: though this french toast was a December special, you just might be able to convince your chef to whip it up for you during your next brunch trip.
