Awesome Brunch…In a Bar? – Burgundian Bar in Wallingford

Before the Mariner game last week, the little lady and I wanted to take in a killer brunch. Since she works in the city now, she told me about a little spot that caught her eye as she was driving home one night. The Burgundian is a hidden gem that was completely worth the trip down to the Wallingford neighborhood.

You could pass by this bar and not even know it was there if you weren’t looking. Walking in, the walls are filled with a fantastic selection of bourbon, tequila and rums. Low lighting and dark wood tables gives the dining room a warm feel. All of the servers were very knowledgeable about the menu and were extremely pleasant.

If you had a crazy Saturday night (you know what I mean) and need some good scratch cooking to sop up that alcohol, this is a place you need to visit. They have numerous varieties of the bloody mary and all of their food is fresh, seasonal and local. Let me clarify…this is a bar, not a bar and grill. You must be 21 and over.

We Ordered:

Bonney’s Biscuit Sandwich
Your choice of fried chicken, ham, or house made sausage on a bacon white cheddar biscuit topped with two organic eggs and cream cheese Hollandaise.  Served with seasoned red skin potatoes.

Biscuits & Gravy
Bacon cheddar biscuit stuffed with house-made breakfast sausage, topped with country gravy and two organic eggs. Served with seasoned red skin potatoes.


If you haven’t read my previous blogs or you just don’t know me, I am kind of a biscuit snob. When I am cravin’ a biscuit, Pillsbury just don’t cut it. These were BISCUITS! And, even better, they had bacon and cheese baked in. (Seriously, drooling now thinking about them) I could tell that they take a lot of pride in the food they put out. Though the kitchen is small and we had to wait a little while longer than in a typical restaurant, but it was well worth it.

We just had the breakfast. I’m guessing since we enjoyed breakfast so much, we would also enjoy their elevated pub fare as well. Some of the dishes include: poutine, scratch-made gnocchi, house cured meats and giant burgers.

This is a place that I would definitely visit again; for breakfast or during the typical Friday night rush. This is a great place to get a drink with the boys or recover after a night of getting drinks with the boys. The Burgundian in Wallingford is a fun and casual spot to get specialty coctails and share some awesome food.

I give this bar a 4 out of 5 bellypats!

I will leave you with this joke: Two fat guys walk into a bar.

One says to the other, “Your round.”

The other says, “So are you you fat  %#$@#$!”

Thanks for reading and stay hungry my friends : )
