A new brunch spot is hitting the culinary corridor of Avenida Encinas at the end of January 2019, an addition that will take the morning meal to a whole new level.Toast Gastrobrunch will serve clever breakfast and lunch fare with tasty libations to start the day off with a cheer.
Hungarian-born Executive Chef/Partner Alfred “Alfie” Szeprethy will run the show at Toast, having risen from a young prep cook to his current role as Sammy’s Executive Corporate Chef. “Toast will offer a wide selection of interesting flavor combinations to start everyone’s day off right,” he says. Examples of what diners can expect range from Smoked Brisket Hash to Pistachio Shredded Toast (featuring filo with ricotta and mozzarella filling soaked in sweet orange blossom sauce), to their signature Eggs in Purgatory (a sourdough bread bowl cradling poached eggs in a spicy shashuska sauce, mushrooms, bacon, feta, scallions and mint) along with a variety of “Toasts” and breakfast salads.
“We look forward to bringing the Carlsbad community and its guests together at our exciting new breakfast and lunch destination,” says Szeprethy.
For those seeking a kickstart to their day, Toast will showcase a menu brimming with breakfast cocktails, featuring Flaming Coffee, a rich intermingling of coffee, Irish whiskey, sugar and fire, and their decadent Boozey Start, a combination of coffee, brandy, Grand Marnier and Kahlua topped off with whipped cream and an orange peel. A selection of Bloody Marys will also be available along with Sangrias, Bubblys, Micheladas and original cocktails including their irresistible Lavender Lady, a lavender cordial made with lime juice, champagne and lavender bitters.
Toast will be located at 5970 Avenida Encinas in Carlsbad in the spot that previously housed Pisco Rotisserie & Cevicheria. toastgastrobrunch.com
