what: flatbread scramble
cost: $10 (brunch)
where: Arkos Mojo Grill & Martini Bar, 109K Old Chapin Rd., 785-5660

Lexington hasn’t traditionally been known as a Sunday brunch and cocktails kind of town, but Arkos Mojo Grill owner Jonathan Stambolitis aims to change that perception. Last Sunday, I stopped by and sat at the bar to check out the brunch offerings, like this week’s Bite, a breakfast-themed flatbread pizza appetizer with a base sauce of béarnaise and toppings of scrambled egg, crumbled Mexican-style chorizo, diced ham, pineapple, roasted red pepper, cheddar jack cheese and chives. In other words, a breakfast buffet on a plate. And I couldn’t pass up the impressive bloody mary bar ($8), with your choice of a dozen vodkas (I went with Absolut Cilantro), and a mixing station stocked with Arkos’ own bloody mary mix along with half a dozen major brands, and a spread of hot sauces, pickled garnishes and seasonings. Bar manager Ray Martinez says he’ll be updating the cocktail menu for spring in the next few weeks, so stay tuned. Arkos has a Latin fusion menu and is open Tuesday and Wednesday 4 to 10 p.m.; Thursday through Saturday 4 p.m. to midnight; and Sunday 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for brunch.
