Savoring Nostalgia at RSVP at the Club

by | Apr 2024

ARE YOU familiar with the saying, “The best memories are made around the table?” In the South, you will find that most of our memories include food. Some of my best memories were made around the breakfast table. My parents would have a big spread of Southern dishes. We would get together with friends; our table was always full of laughter and an occasional food fight. Yes, that happened more than once. I miss the family, the laughter, and the smells and tastes of yesterday. 

You can make memories of your own over brunch at RSVP at The Club, which is open to the public inside the Lebanon Golf and Country Club. The restaurant offers a Sunday brunch reminiscent of my childhood. My family went there and was very impressed. 

When we walked in, the hostess seated us in Lisa’s section. She greeted us with a smile and asked us what we were drinking. I like my coffee with some flavor, so she offered to make a caramel iced coffee even though it wasn’t on the menu. 

The buffet was an impressive selection of breakfast and lunch items. We tried a little bit of everything. The biscuits were fluffy and paired well with the sawmill gravy — a staple for a traditional Southern brunch. My family especially loved the fried chicken, the grits, and the Dr. Pepper glazed ham. To make brunch even more special, the restaurant offered an ice cream sundae bar with a variety of toppings. 

If you are craving biscuits and gravy or have out-of-town guests who want a taste of the South, take them to RSVP at The Club for Sunday brunch. You will get the comforts of Southern home cooking without the mess. Ask for Lisa to make her special caramel iced coffee. GN
