There are a lot of new restaurants that are so, well, just gosh-darned serious. The menu needs a curator to explain the amount of care and attention that went into even the garnish on the plate. Rebel, the newest restaurant from the Century Hospitality Group, instead plugs into our senses of nostalgia and fun.
The menu itself sees playful takes on TV dinners (“The Hangry Man,” an upscale take on meat loaf) and the weekend brunch features a breakfast taco – eggs, bacon and plenty of cilantro; the tortilla is replaced with a soft waffle.
But maybe nothing screams “let’s play” more than the confetti cake (re-christened Cake for Breakfast on the brunch menu). It’s a white cake bigger than the human head, with Froot Loops dotting the icing, and gathered on the plate. It’s always brought out with a sparkler, and comes with a big glass of milk. Hey, it’s your birthday – every day.
