Good Morning Darlings!

How are you feeling? Did you over indulge last night? Never fear, Caren West is here – with a great suggestion on where to drag your weary bones for a nourishing breakfast to start 2011 with.


Beginning at 11 a.m. on January 1, 2011, Diners Can Enjoy an Expanded Menu of Lunch and Brunch Items Day and Night

Begin 2011 with a hearty brunch at Diesel Filling Station in the Virginia-Highlands all day and night. On New Year’s Day, January 1, 2011, starting at 11 a.m. Diesel will serve a special “breakfast all day” menu featuring a diverse selection of its signature brunch and lunch items. The expanded menu includes the new Benedict Explosion – a bacon explosion topped with cream cheese on an english muffin, drizzled with honey and topped with a poached egg and hollandaise; and, favorites like the vegetarian biscuits and gravy made with veggie sausage; the popular Death Muffin; filet and eggs; french toast; make-your-own omelets and much more.  Couples can also enjoy brunch for two for $25, which includes two brunch entrees and a choice of a Bloody Mary or mimosa pitcher or a bucket of tall boy beers.
