Upon the recommendation of friends, four of us ventured to Vin Rouge this past Sunday for brunch. I've never judged a restaurant by location or decor, since usually the best food comes out of the most interesting establishments and grand and gorgeous establishments are needed in order to serve overly expensive bland food (An in Cary for example). Anyway, Vin Rouge has such a pricey dinner menu that we decided upon brunch. I got the ham and gruyere omelette that came with pommes frites (I guess if it's french food, you don't call them french fries), and a small green salad. The dressing on the salad was excellent! The fries were the best of the best as far as fries go. I'm not usually a big fan of fries, but those were yummy. The gruyere was excellently melted throughout my omelette! Daryl got the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and capers and loved it. Joel and Amber both got the Eggs Benedict and said it was great! I would definitely go back. The service was average, but the bread was exceptional!
- Pros: Great brunch menu and prices! Great pommes frites!
- Cons: Cramped quarters for dining
