Playfully called the "Good/Evil Brunch", Nectar Wine Lounge's brunch features "nectars," a twist on the ubiquitous mimosa. Nectars are made from Thrive Juicery's fresh-pressed organic juices mixed with sparkling wine. A little bit good; a little bit bad.
Mimosas, three ways:
- Single mimosa ($10)
- Flight of three ($14)
- Good & Evil minibar: bottle of champagne & juice ($30)
Provided you aren't part of the brunch school that likes to stuff itself silly and pass out for the rest of the day, this is a nice and light alternative to tortured weekend brunch lines around town, with a small menu that includes a spinach and mushroom frittata alongside breakfast flatbreads and pizzettas. One unassuming item turns out to be one of the most clever highlights here: vegan whole wheat bread made from the pulp of the cold-pressed juices made there by Thrive Cleanse.
Thrive and Nectar have recently partnered up on a collaborative weekend brunch from 11AM-3PM featuring light fare alongside flights of pressed juice mimosas. Playing off of the balance, there's even an option to try a full carafe of juice with a full bottle of sparkling wine, a combo they lightheartedly call "Good vs. Evil." As Thrive likes to point out, there's something to be said for being able to detox and retox in the very same place.
