Queensview Steakhouse at Parker's Lighthouse, Long BeachHappy Sunday Lovelies!
Most years, March is a month-long birthday celebration. This year, it was just a two week long celebration, but with how fabulous it was, I was quite alright with that. Since I had a houseguest on my actual birthday and through the following weekend, I got together with the fabulous ladies of my family the weekend after. It should not be a surprise that I chose to celebrate with Brunch!
When it came to picking a place, one of my first thoughts was Parker's Lighthouse. We've lunched there twice before and both times were amazing, so I went to the menu tab on their website. And there was no Brunch menu. Parker's Lighthouse doesn't offer Brunch? WHAT? No Brunch? How? Why?
I poked around a bit and found a Brunch menu on the Queensview Steakhouse site. Turns out, this isn't a separate restaurant, but is located on the third floor of Parker's Lighthouse. All was, once again, right with the world. I LOVE this location! Part of Shoreline Village, the restaurant is right across the Long Beach Harbor from the Queen Mary. It's an absolutely beautiful setting for any meal.
In this particular case, we were Brunching! And I was super excited!! Happy Birthday to me. Literally.
The menu may not be super extensive, but it's super amazing!
Like any respectable Brunch, my mother and I started this one with Mimosas.
Sylvi ordered some type of bourbon cocktail and Oma partook in the Bloody Mary Bar.
Sylvi may not have known exactly what she was doing, but Oma was very happy with the Bloody Mary that she made for her. With how fancy the Blood Mary Bar was, I suppose it's pretty difficult for anyone to construct a bad one...
While we waited for our food, we enjoyed our cocktails and the spectacular view.
Oma and I ordered the Crab Cake Benedict. It. Was. Divine. And the Sundried Tomato Béarnaise Sauce? I can't even talk about it...
Per birthday tradition, after we ate, there were presents.
After that, we enjoyed a complimentary birthday Strawberry Panna Cota.
The fabulous food, drinks, and setting aside, with this group of ladies, it's difficult to NOT have a fabulous time!
Since it's Sunday, instead of a good bye, I'll simply wish all of you a Fabulous Brunch!
