Fort Oak

We recently had brunch at Fort Oak, the latest new restaurant from the Trust Restaurant Group, which has already received much critical praise.

I’ve enjoyed the Trust Restaurants Group’s restaurants so far, having dined at both Trust and Hundred Proof a few times. A few weeks ago, we tried brunch at Fort Oak with CC and her husband.

ARTISANAL BREAKFAST PASTRIES
We started with a selection of breakfast pastries, which change daily. On our visit, the assortment included a croissant, blueberry muffin top, brioche, coffee cake, and biscotti.

We also indulged in a trio of cocktails.

PORK ROLL EGG & CHEESE
homemade english muffin, fried egg, american cheese, potatoes
An elevated breakfast sandwich. All the elements were well done and I quite enjoyed this. I especially loved the crispy potatoes that it was served with.

CORN BEEF HASH BENEDICT
poached eggs, cabbage, hollandaise, rye panko, potatoes
The corned beef was very tender. This was one of my favorite bites from our brunch.

CHICKEN FRIED QUAIL & FRENCH TOAST
hot honey, date purée, house-cultured butter
The thick slice of French toast was incredibly fluffy and I really enjoyed the fried quail as well. The quail meat was quite moist while the batter was light and crunchy.

FRIED CHICKEN SANDWICH

The breading on the chicken was a little too salty and there were almost too many pickles in the sandwich. I felt it was the one weak dish of all the ones we tried.

HOUSE SAUSAGE
The house sausage links were quite generous in size and I loved the flavor.

Overall, we had a lovely brunch at Fort Oak. The food was enjoyable and the service was friendly and attentive. I would definitely come back again. I also am interested in checking out the dinner menu soon.

  1. Hey Kirbie!

    I went there for dinner and it was really good. I recommend getting the cauliflower-esque dish.

  2. Another fun brunch date! I really liked the pastry basket – the variety was nice and the quality was excellent. My sandwich was pretty salty but I did like the sausage side (very juicy). Their drinks were also fun. I’ll have to come back for dinner with my husband.

    • It was a very fun brunch date! Hope we can do it again soon. I loved the pastry basket. So sad your sandwich was salty. I almost ordered the sausage again on my revisit because it was so good but I thought it would have been too much meat with the steak.
