Photo of the Day: brunch at Millie’s in RVA. I had something new for once! Braised beef cheeks with roasted tomato + cheese grits and two poached eggs. Heaven.
B surprised me on Saturday morning and took me to one of my favorite restaurants, Flint! It’s in the bottom of the Colcord Hotel in Oklahoma City, and their food is to die for. When I finished my half marathon, I ordered one of their huge cheeseburgers and ate in in my fluffy bed at the Colcord. Basically heaven on earth.
We started off with some $2 mimosas, which rocked my world. That’s a cherry in the bottom of the glass!
I got the egg white omelet with mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, and butternut squash with a side of potato hash and toast (not pictured). I ate every bit of it!
B got what I ordered the first time I went to Flint, the lemon ricotta pancakes! They were so light and fluffy, and they came with some cutely packaged syrup.
We loved our experience with the food, but unfortunately, as we were leaving, the credit card machine broke and we had to wait around for about 15 minutes for someone to find a way to charge our card. We offered to go get cash from an ATM, but there wasn’t one near the hotel. It would have been cool if the manager had come over and at least told us they were working on it, but everyone seemed too busy to tell us what was going on even though we were the only ones in the restaurant at the time.
Hopefully, this was just a one-time hiccup because I love the ambiance food, and prices of Flint! We paid around $25 for two brunches and two mimosas, so that’s a great deal for feeling so fancy. I totally recommend this place to anyone (though you might want to bring cash).
