Sunday Brunch is Back at Tacoma’s Stink, Cheese & Meat

Stink, Cheese & Meat reintroduced its bottomless mimosas and bloody marys as part of its Sunday Brunch on June 6.

Since taking over Stink and El Tofu Wine Bar in 2018, owners Jenny Smith and Steve Ramsey have not only expanded on the original Spanish-influenced tapas and wine bar, they’ve created a more approachable neighborhood vibe by adding their own touch.

While the traditional recipes remain, they’ve built upon the menu to offer popular lunchtime deli-style soups and sandwiches, while still maintaining the El Tofu Wine Bar, tapas, and charcuterie options.

By extending the bar to include both beer and cocktails, among the already expansive selection of imported wines and cheeses, the weekly rotation of tapas and happy hour specials, keeps the menu fresh and new.

“We change out our wine list about every seven to 10 days,” Smith said. “A lot of guests like to try new things. Variety is the spice of life, so we like to switch it up.”

In the past, they’ve had live music, comedy shows, and even cooking classes which they hope to continue as restaurant occupancy rates lift.

Bringing back Sunday brunch is an added bonus.

Check it out for brunch favorites like waffles and a variety of benedicts. Or make it a lunch date during the week with a number of family-friendly options.

Upgrade date night, or a night out with friends with bread and charcuterie nibbles alongside wine flights or a long list of aperitifs.

“Our strong point is our variety,” Smith said. “We can appeal to kids who love a classic mac-n-cheese, first-time wine drinkers that are just learning, and those more distinguished palates. I think being diverse is what keeps us strong.”
