The best difference between brunch and dinner at Meat and Potatoes, well dinner on a Friday night when happy hour is taking place, was the noise level. While music was still playing in the background (a great selection, I might add, of classic favorites), the music was neither deafening nor was the conversation of other diners who were straining to make themselves heard above the music.
While I strongly considered ordering from its libations menu, specifically "taste experimenting" with its French Toast Flip, I kept it boring by just ordering hot tea. However, the idea of egg in a cocktail certainly sounded intriguing. D went with the Irish Breakfast ($8), a libation that featured Jameson, coffee, maple whipped cream and an orange slice that gave it the perfect color.
Although it's next to impossible to disappoint me where brunch is concerned, Meat and Potatoes' brunch quickly became one of my favorites here in Pittsburgh. It strives to be different and greatly succeeds in offering a really fun and appetizingly good time.
