The Spot: This relatively new Beachwood gastro bistro right by UCB has killer tater-tots and duck fat French fries, as well as other things not made from potatoes.
Shelley says: "Their brunch menu's got seven different Bloody Marys, including the Bloody LeRoy (fresh horseradish, BBQ sauce, and a fried onion ring garnish) and the Bloody Maureen (Guinness, house Mary mix, and a pickle spear). But the real highlight of the menu is The Bloody Royale, which's got (deep breath) a celery stalk, green olive, pickle spear, bacon-wrapped roasted jalapeño, pickled tomatillo, a fried onion ring, pepper Jack cheese, a roasted Brussels sprout, and an English burger slider. So, yeah, you may just skip your brunch entree altogether."
