At Rosemont Social Club Brunch Isn't Just a Meal, It's an Atmosphere
The Rosemont Social Club, if you haven't yet been, leaves quite an impression--even before you get to brunch. (But you should get to brunch, and soon.) Entering through the "secret" back door, your first look is of the downstairs bar and the giant, turquoise-upholstered captain's chairs that surround it. Couches and low tables create the rest of the seating area, which you see before you head upstairs to a large, indoor/outdoor bar space decked out in deep, rich red tones.

The vibe at Rosemont is one of cool, casual luxury--is that brunch or what? So naturally, their new "Sunday Social" series is not to be missed.
On this particular Sunday, my dining companion and I both had to forgo brunch cocktails, much to our disappointment. It's never good to mix cold medicine and booze, so we had to stick with boring old water while we gazed longingly at the bottles that lined the shelves of the downstairs bar. The Sunday drink specials were hard to resist, even as we each battled an oncoming cold: $3 Three Olives vodka, $3 mimosas, $3 frozen lemonades (with flavored FruitLab liqueur floaters for another $1), and $4 Bloody Marys and Bellinis--those prices are good every Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Sit downstairs in the bar for a quiet, cozy meal; sit upstairs to hear DJ Get Low spinning on the patio from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
