We’re firm believers that Sundays were made for brunch. That’s why we were excited to give Barceloneta’s brunch a try. Being long-time fans of the Pubbelly Group and Barceloneta’s Executive Chef Juliana Gonzalez, we were eager to see what her Spanish-inspired brunch had in store.
You can do brunch one of two ways. Order a la carte for the table, which we did, or order the restaurant’s “brunch special” that includes your choice of six items from the bistro, huerta, salads and rice section for $35 a person. For an additional $25 you can add on the open bar package that includes brunch-favorites bloody mary’s, mimosas, and our personal favorite, the gin-spiked white sangria.
Never one to be light eaters, we tried a little bit from each section. Highlights included Eggs Benedict served on top of a potato roll, with pork belly, serrano ham and Hollandaise sauce; the Croque Monsieur with black forrest ham, iberico ham, mornay sauce; Tartar de Wagyu made with Australian Wagyu beef, herb sabayon, mustard, crispy capers and topped with apples; the Spanish-favorite Huevos Estrellados filled with eggs, chorizo, potatoes, onions and pimento salt; and for “dessert” the Torrijas a Spanish-take on French toast topped with fruit and quince butter.
Admittedly, Sunset Harbour is bit of a construction zone right now, but there is a surprising amount of parking less than a block away from the restaurant so don’t let that deter you from checking out Barceloneta’s brunch, which is available every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. And if you’re a soccer fan then you’re in luck since the restaurant always makes sure to play the biggest games happening all over the world.
Until you get a chance to check out the brunch for yourself, take a look at the delicious pictures below.
