Brunch at AVEO Table + Bar is now offered every Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. -  2:00 p.m.

With the introduction of its new Chef de Cuisine, Donald Lockhart, AVEO Table + Bar moves away from its brunch buffet to a curated à la carte menu. Together, Executive Chef Collin Thornton and Chef Lockhart have created a menu that masterfully blends flavors from all across the Mediterranean.

Standout dishes on AVEO Table + Bar’s new à la carte brunch menu include Crispy Belly Burger with ground sirloin and a slab of maple-glazed pork belly; Peekytoe Crab Cake Eggs Benedict; and Nutella Crunch French Toast topped with rum-flambéed bananas.

A sharable seafood tower, made-to-order omelets, mobile Bloody Mary cart, and free-flowing beverage upgrades, popular hallmarks reminiscent of the former brunch buffet, will remain, adding an element of extravagance to AVEO’s new weekend brunch. Guests will also be able to select from over 30 exclusive bottles of premier champagne from the AVEO cellar.
