Sorry mimosa lovers, but your bottomless glass has blinded you to the sad truth that brunch is the most boring meal. Almost every restaurant in town serves the same thing—eggs Benedict, French toast, pancakes—with only the slightest variations. Eat The Rich’s Grand Chesapeake Boil for two puts all those breakfast staples to shame. The overflowing $38 platter, served on Sundays, consists of cooked clams, whelks, large scallops, shrimp, squid, and swordfish in a buttery glaze with some smoked pork garlic sausage and two poached eggs. New potatoes, pickled button mushrooms, and cauliflower florets also squeeze on the plate, which is accompanied by grilled bread and a spicy sweet garlic aioli. You’ll never want to see Hollandaise sauce again.
