Grandma’s Birthday Brunch

by Audrey Lee

Nov 10, 2021

My grandmother’s birthday falls during the first week of November. This year, we celebrated in Medford, New Jersey, at Braddock’s Tavern with the whole family.

birthday birthdaySince our party was big, we were seated in a separate room at a large, round table. The historic feel of the restaurant made us feel like we were at a homey bed and breakfast. Our waitress came to take our order, but we were not ready, as there were too many tasty options. We started with duck fat patatas bravas in a rosemary-orange aioli and the duck egg rolls for the table to share. Both dishes were flavorful and hit the spot. For my main dish, I ordered the French onion short rib. This monster of a sandwich was juicy, tender and packed with salty au jus, with some extra on the side to dip. I planned to only eat half; but it was so good, I dove into the other half. Each plate came with homemade chips that were seasoned perfectly.

After, we took a stroll down Medford’s Main Street to window shop. My grandmother used to have a spot at one of the antique stores, so we popped in to see how the shop looks now. It was the same but with new vendors. I purchased some holiday décor, and we walked down the street to our next destination, The Pop Shop.birthday

Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs Review

It’s often declared Paris’ Left Bank, or La Rive Gauche, the local side of the Seine —  where bohemian and chic are used superfluously, albeit with some veracity. It only makes sense that travelers looking to stay on the Left Bank would seek as local an accommodation as possible — Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs is the new kid on the block and certainly delivers this with its design following the likes of a Parisian art collectors’ residence.
