Black Sheep adds weekend brunch
HUNTINGTON -- Since opening its doors in September Black Sheep Burrito and Brews has established a name for itself in downtown Huntington as a restaurant/bar with an eclectic menu, live music and a wide selection of craft beers.
Now after bringing to Huntington curry chicken burritos and smoked duck tacos, Black Sheep is expanding its menu to include a weekend brunch. On Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. Black Sheep is serving a brunch menu featuring its famous breakfast burrito alongside new items like huevos rancheros and whiskey cream French toast. The bar will also offer Bloody Mary cocktails and mimosas. Side items will include homemade sausage, fried bacon and roasted potatoes.
"We had the brunch concept in mind since the beginning. We wanted to focus on our lunch and dinner menu first. Once we had the stabilized the operation of the restaurant, we decided to expand to include some brunch items," chef Jeremiah Bowen said. "There's not a lot in Huntington that compares to what we are offering. We also added coffee to the menu. In addition to regular drip coffee we have premium French Press coffee from a local provider named Ignition Roasters."
Offerings include Huevos Rancheros, which are two eggs cooked to order with beans, ranchero sauce and sliced avocado, starting at $5.95. You can also add a side of chicken, brisket or homemade sausage for an additional charge.
"We also have Breakfast Tortas which are a Mexican-style sandwich served on fresh telera bread," Bowen said. "They're often served with rich flavored meats like chorizo (sausage) or bacon. We also have a variety of vegetarian and vegan fare on the menu."
The tortas range in price from $6.50 to $7.25. They come served with roasted potatoes. Breakfast quesadillas served with black bean and corn salsa and a lima-sriracha crema sauce are available ranging in price from $7.50 to $8.25.
"Our whiskey cream French toast is served with a bacon marmalade and a cinnamon-vanilla infused blueberry syrup which we flavor in house," Bowen said. "The bacon marmalade almost has a fan base in and of itself. I'm considering jarring it. We also have eggs Benidicto served with smoked hoisin duck. Of course we're bringing our Breakfast Burrito along as a stand-by."
