Brunch of the week: Himmarshee Public House in Fort Lauderdale

Brunch at Himmarshee Public House in Fort Lauderdale melds together the flavors of grandma’s homemade meals with a party vibe.

Chef Tara Abrams’ menu offers an oversized brunch. Most dishes are large enough to share between two people.

Everything is made from scratch, from the Hollandaise sauce to the giant biscuits.

Some of the dishes have a Southern, comfort-food spin, such as the Smoked Brisket Benedict, served with corn bread, and the Southern Benedict, served with buttermilk fried chicken atop two biscuit halves.

Abrams says many diners come in especially for the Smores Stuffed French Toast, with thick cuts of challah bread, crushed graham crackers, chocolate chips and toasted marshmallows.

Public House’s brunch also offers drinking deals. Bottomless mimosas and Bloody Mary’s cost $15. Bottomless White Girl Rose costs $25. There also are breakfast-inspired shots, such as the Cinnamon Toast Crunch, made with Fireball and RumChata.

A large screen inside the restaurant often shows sports games. On Saturdays, the atmosphere is more relaxed, with families often stopping by for brunch. On Sundays, a DJ plays louder music of all genres, from country to house music to pop songs –– creating a party vibe.

Himmarshee Public House, at 201 SW Second St. in Fort Lauderdale, offers brunch every Saturday and Sunday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Call 954-616-5275 or go to PublicHouseFTL.com/Brunch.
