Staff Pick of the Week - Kristin

American Social

Sunday Brunch is something I look forward to every single week. Rain or shine, you bet I’m going to relax on a Sunday and treat myself to some breakfast! One of my favorite places to do that is American Social! “AmSo”, as the kids call it, truly is a hot spot on Sundays – so be sure to make a reservation! I personally request to sit out on their patio because it overlooks the Bay, you can feel the sea breeze and sunshine, and if it is football season, they have a massive screen so the entire deck can watch the Bucs win! 
To top it off, their brunch menu is phenomenal. I’ve tried nearly everything and I always come back to the Smoked Salmon Benedict! Oh and $3 mimosas? Count me in! 
Lastly, I never have to worry about parking here either because they have an underground parking garage. If you get your ticket scanned by the hostess, your parking is free up to two hours!
