101 W. Franklin St.
Second Place: Can Can Brasserie
Third Place: Joe's Inn
The elegant and expansive Jefferson Hotel Sunday champagne brunch has long been the way to impress a date, entertain family and eat enough spoon bread and poached shrimp to last until Monday. If the menu isn't enough to get your mouth watering, your eyes can take in the marble columns and grand interior. And your ears will enjoy music from the Skip Gailes Trio. Readers also seem to like their brunch with a view, and Can Can's can be eye-popping on a weekend morning, with the ghosts of Friday and Saturday nights arising to cruise the strip in search of nourishment. Joe's Inn, which takes best breakfast, gets nods for brunch too.
