Some new, yet familiar, items are making an appearance on the brunch menu at Swig.

Missing bottomless brunch mimosas at Water Buffalo? They're back ... at Swig

When the news broke that Water Buffalo had closed after 11 years in business, regular customers mourned the loss.

Folks spoke fondly on social media of favorite dishes, date-night specials and memories of time spent at the riverfront eatery with friends and family.

Meanwhile, the folks at Hospitality Democracy were listening intently.

"Among the things people were most upset about when we announced that Water Buffalo had closed was the bottomless mimosa offering for brunch," says Hospitality Democracy co-founder Joe Sorge. "So, it seemed reasonable that we bring it back."

So, beginning this weekend, a new brunch menu at Swig, 217 N. Broadway, will not only feature perennial Swig favorites, but also a selection of best-selling offerings from Water Buffalo.

In addition to popular small plate favorites like banana fritters and the famous avocado toast trio (featuring smoked salmon and roe, tomato jam, and Nueske's ham), brunch will also include entrees like bananas foster French toast, the crab cake benedict, the black bean burger and the cowboy skillet with beef tenderloin, breakfast potatoes, corn, sun-dried tomato, caramelized onion and fried egg.

And yes, there will also be mimosas. Any customer who purchases a brunch entree is eligible for the bottomless offering, which is just $25 for both the entree and endless pours of the classic brunch cocktail.

Swig is open for brunch on both Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
