Trey Popp enjoys the Southern cooking of chef Regis Jansen at Rex 1516, especially during the brunch hours.
Rex is best at brunch. The Monte Cristo sandwich is a small miracle: Swiss and pepperjack melting into smoked ham and fig preserves between lofty slices of brioche, the whole caboodle having been battered and deep-fried. And when I popped in one weekday for a profound bowl of lunchtime pulled-duck jambalaya, I found myself ordering an even more surprising soul-soother. Remember the $3 pint? It’s back! And as PBC’s Newbold IPA, no less.
