I got some help reviewing brunch for today's Weekend. (Doesn't Joanne Drilling look great in that photo with those delicious ricotta lemon pancakes?) I do like brunch. it's funny, though, brunch is either too much or not enough. Buffets always seem like they have too much to choose from, while a la carte brunches are never quite enough food. Buffets are nice because they stretch things out, and the very idea of brunch is that it should be leisurely. That's its best feature--you know you're not at work if you're relaxing over your third cup of coffee in the middle of the day. And that's why brunch is a nice thing for taking your mother out to eat. She wants to spend time with you!
