Brunch with the Birds at The National Aviary
By Matthew Hacke
Nothing says spring like enjoying a garden brunch! Stop by The National Aviary for a delicious brunch, served in the historic rose garden, on select dates this season. The National Aviary’s award-winning chef, Josef Karst of Atria’s Catering, creates enticing dishes with local ingredients. “Having a close relationship with local farmers and an extensive knowledge of culinary trends and sustainable practices, Chef Karst is a professional whose outlook and experience align perfectly with The National Aviary’s mission of conservation and sustainability,” says Laura Daversa, events manager of The National Aviary. Some of his specialities include seafood quiche Florentine, bourbon-glazed ham off the bone with mango chutney, and chicken tinga enchiladas — all coupled with an assortment of traditional breakfast options from organic eggs, seasonal fresh fruit, and cinnamon egg twist French toast! For the 21+ crowd, Bloody Marys, mimosas, fruity sangrias, and magic screw drivers are available as well. On top of the beautiful scenery and amazing menu, guests can also interact with the birds and enjoy full-day admission to The National Aviary after. Space is limited, so reservations are required. Brunch is served at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. For more information, call 412.258.9445 or visit aviary.org.
