This past weekend, we decided to check out the renovated and renamed Brio Coastal Bar & Kitchen. It’s been several years since I was last there (we went to celebrate my sisters medical school graduation and she’s now gone through her residency and has been working at a pediatric practice in her new hometown of Clinton, SC) and it’s completely changed. It went from having a Tuscany feel to what I’m assuming is a laid back Italian Coastal feel. Some of the former menu options remain along with a mostly revamped menu.
After looking over the menu for quite a while, mum decided to try out one of the options from their brunch menu (which I later wished I had gone with myself with a few substitutions to keep it dairy-free.) We finally decided on what we’d like to try.
Mum enjoyed this spin on the Eggs Benedict which featured Pancetta (which she prefers over prosciutto) cream cheese hollandaise and arugula.
I went with the fish sandwich without the Sriracha honey and Brussel sprout slaw. I know that Brussel sprouts seem to be all the rage appearing all over menus and as a side with many of the food boxes that we like to get, but I think it’s safe to say that I will never be a Brussel sprout (or sweet potato) fan.
While the decor of the place was alright, the music was enough to make you feel like your head was in a blender. It went from everything from country music (which I will never be able to stand no matter how long I live in the South) to 70’s, indie girl rock and music with a caribbean flare.
