Champagne and juice are served separately and frequently, in tasteful mini-carafes, so Gerrard does its best to make you forget you've paid $35 for a single-flavor bottomless deal. (Also, while we’re not a coffee blog, we do feel the need to note that a cup of joe runs you $7.)
Don't make our mistake and gravitate toward the cheaper options — apparently the scrambled eggs and shakshuka options are reasonably priced for a reason (an utter lack of flavor) — but the side paratha is a unique offering, and we'd recommend doubling down with the side mushroom paratha tart.
Our being literally the only patrons in the restaurant on a 15-degree Christmas Eve (what can we say, we're dedicated) surely contributed to the impressive refill speed, but our server also didn't hesitate to bring multiple baskets of complimentary bread and guided us through the menu with aplomb.
With festive holiday decor, the interior's quite warm and far outpaces the expectation for a hotel restaurant, and even the tableware is stylish — while we were excited when our champagne flutes arrived, we were sad to see our delightful ceramic coffee mugs go.
Our most expensive "entree" was a $6.49 power bowl that's frankly not that much worse than the dreck Chipotle's charging double for these days

We received small dishes of olive oil right away at 12:01, but the accompanying baskets of bread only several requests later at 12:45, which was really quite a while considering how pedestrian the mini-loaf was.
We're like the postmen. We brunch in rain, sleet, or snow
