When To Staycation...

By The Thrifty Yinzer

The chefs at Ember and Vine come from all around the country, love farm to table, and truly enjoy their craft. The menu shows! I had oysters on a half shell as an app - could've sworn I was at the shore! For entree I had the gnochi on special and Jamie had the filet!  Yummmmm!

One of my favorite things about picking a hotel for any trip is taking into account the hotel restaurant and the nearby eateries. The Doubletree Cranberry hit all of our hotel must-haves: amazing sit down dinner, and brunch! I love when a restaurant can take on a full menu throughout the day - it makes planning so much easier!! I also loved that I could see right down into the atrium from our room, so we knew exactly when the dinner rush was finishing up and could head right down! 

Let's talk about brunch. Can you even with this bloody mary bar? And above is me customizing my Made-to-order omelette at Ember & Vine!

Fun fact: Ember  & Vine is open to the public and they have a phenomenal brunch with live jazz every Sunday from 11am-2pm! Brunch buffet is only $15/person and includes so many vegan and vegetarian options, as well as non-dairy and gluten free choices!
