The name is no joke. Perched on the southeast corner of Washington Avenue and Sterling Place, sunshine dapples a cozy dining area, where a live D.J. spins some weeknights and during brunch. Nobody’s reinventing the wheel here, but the menu is full of creative takes on traditional American fare. Brunch winners are eggs baked with zucchini, sundried tomatoes, feta, pesto, and arugula, while the egg-in-a-basket comes with a healthy dose of baked beans and thick-cut bacon. But it’s not only brunch the dinner menu is a creative take on traditionally high-end options and perfect for sharing. Small plates of lamb belly and salmon crudo are good for two, and you won’t be disappointed by the duck breast with mushroom caramel, sweet potatoes, and braised cabbage. For bar patrons, there are satisfying, hearty bites like grilled cheese and crumpets with bacon marmalade. There’s now a full bar and an innovative cocktail menu, but the Hot & Heavy with Manzanilla sherry, ancho-chile-infused punt-e-mas, cinnamon bark, lemon juice, and cherry preserves is satisfying even without hard liquor.
