The queen of the waterfront, The Vinoy Renaissance is redefining breakfast in St. Pete with the addition of an old favorite, Grouper Hash, to their already delectable menu! The perfect start to any morning, Chef Mark Heimann and his team are whipping up another great dish for hotel guests and visitors at this iconic landmark hotel.
Off the menu for several years, we were excited to learn they grand dame would once again be offering this breakfast favorite from the nineties. Dropped from the menu due to the grouper ban we could not be happier to see it back! Made with seared black grouper, caramelized red peppers, onion & leeks, heirloom one bite potatoes, and perfectly poached eggs this delectable dish is then topped with a delicate citrus hollandaise adding just the right amount of tartness, perfecting the dish.
Treat yourself to fine dining as it was meant to be, at the Vinoy's signature restaurant, Marchand's. Relax behind arched windows overlooking panoramic waterfront views of the bay, beneath centuries-old hand-painted ceilings and walls in this 1920s charmer. Marchand's features award-winning classic American and comfort cuisine, fresh seafood,meats and pasta and offers an a la carte Sunday Beer Brunch featuring tapas, waffles, seafood, hand-carved meats, desserts, breads, Mimosas, a Bloody Mary bar and more.
Want to take your experience up a notch, A “Chef’s Table” room allows guests to enjoy private tastings in a secluded setting. Marchand’s serves breakfast, lunch and dinner though you only find the Grouper Hash on their breakfast menu.
Our family favorites include the Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes with Orange Compote and fresh whipped cream. My boys actually crave these tart yet sweet griddle cakes dripping in citrus goodness while my husband routinely orders Marchand's Cuban Benedict. Made with Cuban bread from the world-famous La Segunda Bakery in Tampa, Marchand's layers mojo pork belly and poached eggs gently napping it with and a sour orange hollandaise that is silky perfection on the palate,
