|Union Rooftop with roof retracted|
other side of the world. I decided to take the initiative and made a reservation for The Union Rooftop's Sunday Brunch. I have heard a lot about Union, both good and bad so I figured it was time to check it out for myself.
I'm glad I made a reservation and would definitely recommend it. You can make a reservation right on their website, its powered by OpenTable which is one of my favorite websites. The place was packed and it was wonderful being able to walk to the head of the line and have a table ready and waiting. The line of hungover twenty somethings behind us did not share my delight...Everyone was out and about trying to enjoy the beautiful weather after such a long and gloomy week. The rooftop at Union is breathtaking! They have an amazing retractable solarium style roof that allows diners to enjoy the rooftop even during not so nice weather. In the back corner of the bar area is a DJ. In most situations this could be obnoxious but it's perfect background sound level and gives the whole rooftop a wonderfully excited buzz.

Our waitress was very honest when we asked her opinion of a few menu items which was very refreshing. She wasn't a fan of their Bourbon Bloody, she offered to make a traditional bloody and throw the oxtail slider on there regardless. Sam was sold right away, his bloody came out and it could have been a meal in itself. Topped with a slider, pickle, celery stick green olives and some sort of salami slice it was a work of art. I opted for their Bottomless Mimosa, only $10 when you order food. They are NOT joking when they say bottomless mimosa! You good a good size glass filled to the brim with a perfectly mixed mimosa within minutes of ordering. No sooner do you take a sip or two than someone is at your table with a pitcher filling you back up. I never even got close to seeing the bottom of my glass...Sam was quickly assigned chauffeur duties for the day (sorry not sorry).

Our entire dining experience lasted less than 40 minutes but we enjoyed every minute.The atmosphere, staff and food were all top notch and I can't wait to go back again. My biggest suggestion would be to make a reservation to avoid the wait. If you would like more information about The Union Rooftop you can check out their website or follow them on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
