Brunch—like twilight, sporks, skorts, friends with benefits, and so many other things that make life worth living—is not quite one thing and not quite another. Celebrate everyone's favorite mutant mealtime with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Sunday brunch at The Bank Food and Drink in Pearisburg.
Giovanni Guarini and Nancy Jurek both bring culinary practice in Italy to each creation on The Bank's brunch menu of fresh Mediterranean cuisine. Their carefully curated list of local and organic ingredients includes house-made bread, fair-trade chocolate, and eggs from their own hens as well as local, free-range farms. Transport restless tongues to a scenic villa in the Italiano, a croissant packed with pastry cream and jam, local honey, and fresh fruit ($14.50). The Munch plants sprouted-seed granola in a succulent bed of fresh fruit, nuts, and yogurt, coupled with two gourmet cheeses and a glass of dessert wine or orange juice ($22.50). A host of à la carte items offer smaller portioned plates such as bruschetta ($6.50) and a german pancake ($9.50).
Chefs craft Sunday brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., then release it into a spacious dining room lined with checkerboard-tile floors and arched windows. In addition to the eco-friendly menu, The Bank infuses its daily practices with earth-sustaining karma by conserving energy, recycling, and composting.
