Last year, North invited Tucson Yelp Elite for an exclusive preview of their new dinner menu and updated digs. Over the weekend, we did it again! This time Yelp Elites woke up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for Yelp's Rise and Dine Brunch to sample a lavish family-style spread of brunch entrées. Grazie to the gracious staff and culinary team at North for an amazing experience!
Mini Yogurt Parfaits. Astonishingly delicous baked French Toast. Short Rib Hash with Sunny Side Up Eggs, Veggie Scramble. Decadent breakfast Donuts. North went above and beyond. "From the attentive service to a thorough explanation of the food prep, I was blown away throughout the (5 course!) meal," exclaims Jide F. Yeeps also indulged in a "sparkling breakfast shandy with an Italian lager and pomegranate seeds and ultra fresh mimosas," served with orange juice freshly squeezed on site! Tiffany S plans on "on bringing the fam back for some breakfast grande."
But the decadence didn't end there. Yelpers got in on the some culinary action with a DIY breakfast donut demonstration with Chef Carlos! Amanda D sums it up perfectly: "Oh the donuts…what a perfect way to end our brunch. The donuts are the way I want to end every future brunch I have at North! Cream on the inside with lemon curd on the outside. Oh my!"
Every single bite was worth the early morning wake up call. "Not only was this a wonderful event, it was the best brunch I've ever had in Tucson," Yelps Trevor C. We couldn't agree more! And just as we thought North outdid themselves, they surprised us one more time! Each guest was gifted their own jar of Apricot Mostarda (Italian condiment for cheeses and meats) to enjoy at home! Yelpers had a chance to win gift cards with North's Instagram Instaprize photo challenge. Lucky yelpers: Trevor C, Isabel K, Christy F and Sylvia M all went home with gift cards!
An enormous thank you to North for a phenomenal feast, Chef Carlos for spending the morning with us, and the cheerful staff that went above and beyond in every way.
