Make Dogwood Tavern Your New Brunch SpotAugust 21, 2017
Plump, Cajun-seasoned Gulf shrimp served over grits and smothered in spicy Virginia gravy, a single perfect poached egg perched on top. Fried green tomatoes, bacon, pickled onions, and arugula crowned with a fried egg, all peeking out from between two slabs of Texas toast. Perfectly crispy French toast smothered with butter and maple syrup, nestled next to a few strips of bacon. These are the lavish creations that await you during brunch at Dogwood Tavern—the Cajun breakfast grits, the fried green tomato BLT, and the French toast, respectively. It’s not hard to see why Dogwood is a go-to spot for many weekend brunch-goers, especially since Sundays also offer an omelet and waffle bar.
However, Dogwood Tavern isn’t solely about brunch. Patrons also flock here for dinner and late-night drinks, not just for the New American fare, but also because there’s often a promise of live music. Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night, the tavern hosts local talent to entertain its guests. The live music starts at 6:30 p.m. on Thursdays and 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
