Brunch at East Coast Grill
This fiery eatery is probably most famous for its sporadic "Hell Night" events; essentially a dinner for masochists and freaks who like to singe their taste buds on hot pastas and other dishes.
Instead, attend this established eatery for brunch, where meals are more affordable, and more fun. The make your own bloody mary bar offers tantalizing ingredients, from fresh hot sauce to chili paste. Oh, and, don’t forget to get a taste of the corn bread.
