David Burke Opens Brunch at Orange Lawn.  Yum

If you haven’t yet joined the Orange Lawn Tennis Club Dinners and Brunches by David Burke,  it’s the best bargain on the planet,  $10. Per year, not to mention that David Burke is in a class by himself and anything he touches turns to gold.

No Sunday boredom is in sight, thanks to David Burke at Orange Lawn! With the newly launched, inventive Sunday brunch menu, you’ll forget Monday is right around the corner.


Expect Chef Burke’s signature and savory brunch dishes like the Avocado Toast with Smoked Pastrami Salmon (radishes, watercress, sourdough), rich Lobster Scrambled Eggs ostrich-style (fresh lobster, rock shrimp, tomato) or the Fried Chicken and Waffles (corn succotash, hot honey).


And did I mention the room?  David Burke’s dining room at the Orange Lawn Tennis Club is awash in morning light, enchanting with fantastic service and will make  you wish for the next Sunday can come soon.


On the other hand, the Titanic French Toast (berry maple syrup, fresh berries) will satisfy the sweet tooth at the table.

We usually go with a group and the first thing we order is Bacon on a Clothesline.  It’s a fun food to share and the flavor is unforgettable. And who else would think to pair bacon with a pickle. That’s David for you.

Then,  knowing how David likes to play in his food,  we order my fave, Tuna Tartar Tacos.  Others want the chopped salad, or the pancakes, but somebody always springs for the hamburger which makes everybody jealous.

Great drinks are available too:  ginseccos,  belini,  Breakfastini and a Man-Mosa among others.

The point is David Burke is a genius and no matter what he turns his attention to, it becomes unforgettable.  Keep ‘em coming David.  We’ll wait.
