?Nancy Tesmer, co-owner of Lilly's Dim Sum, has opened a new “sophisticated” breakfast and brunch-focused restaurant with Chef Jefffrey More in the former party room of Lilly's. B-Side specializes in the “modern classics,” Tesmer said. Which means items like French toast kabobs, served on a stick wrapped in bacon; a dish called biscuit mountain, made of biscuit, sausage, sausage gravy, rosti (grated parsnips and potatoes, fried) and fried egg; as well as more traditional offerings, like pancakes, eggs benedict and huevos rancheros.
At our press deadline, Tesmer had not yet secured her liquor license, but expected to shortly. She'll offer mimosas, Bloody Marys and other brunch-typical drinks like the Cape Cod, Madras and Salty Dog.
B-Side is located at 11121 N. Rodney Parham Road in the Market Place Shopping Center, and open 7 a.m. until noon, Wednesday through Friday, 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Sunday. The phone number is 554-0914. On Sunday, the restaurant offers an “industry brunch.” Anyone in food service who brings in a paycheck will receive a 25% discount.
Correction: In the Feb. 4 edition of What's Cookin', we mistakenly described the future location of Bar Louie as the former home of Imagine. Capi's is in the former Imagine space. Bar Louie will occupy the former home of Crew.
