San Diego: Recovery Brunch at Imig’s Kitchen & Bar

Breakfast Sandwich

Sometimes you wake up in the morning and crave salt, fat and carbs. Fortunately, we were staying at the Lafayette Hotel and the hotel restaurant, Imig’s was perfect for such a recovery brunch.

We were down for Bartenders Weekend in San Diego and the Lafayette turned out to be a great location. We were close to both Polite Provisions and Seven Grand for key events and there’s a dive bar, Live Wire, down the road. The hotel is very cute with giant chess and checker games outdoors. I was most amazed by the lemon trees outside our room.

We arrived to Imig’s just as brunch was winding down and the lunch menu was starting. This was perfect since my friend got the breakfast sandwich and I got the pastrami. I loved both the hashbrowns and tater tots. We may have gone simply for these on other days. Shhh…

As we ate and moaned our pleasure through the meal, it was quite nice to look at the idyllic pool and survey the room full of Bloody Mary drinkers. I declined in favor of iced tea (caffeine!).

I’d definitely stay at the Lafayette again and I know there’s a (recovery) meal or two at Imig’s to be enjoyed.
