With plans to dine at Stella (for a change) last Sunday, my friend, Kerry had arrived before me and procured us seats at the bar, which was filled with patrons. It was a wait and grab as quick as you can kind of morning. The bartenders were absolutely crazed with creating drinks for the whole restaurant as well as serving all of the bar diners.
First order of business was a Bloody Mary. Having had one in the past at Stella, I knew how ridiculously spicy they could be so asked for a milder version and that is exactly what I got. It was just wonderful and I might add a little strong. A sweetness of juice with a mild bite of horseradish and a strong, fun kick of vodka.

With wonderful looking brunch offerings of fruits, yogurt, bagels, omelets, colorful salads, steaks and pasta dishes, there really is something for everyone’s palate. I ended up with the shredded duck omelet with feta. Served with a toasted English muffin and soft roasted potatoes, this dish was absolutely worthy of our bartender's ravings. Filled to bursting with lovely, shredded and full of flavor duck, which worked so well with creamy feta and omelet. I couldn't even begin to finish it but enjoyed every morsel I managed.

On this particular Sunday, service was unrushed, casual and easy-going, exactly as brunch should be. Our bartender, as busy as he was, worked visibly hard to keep on top of everything and everyone's needs.
Stella is another great choice for weekend brunchers and also a great price point of $8-15. Check it out this Sunday.
