Second time at this restaurant…the first was great…actually ordered the same thing this time. The Wild Mushroom Frittata. (Who wouldn’t order something with the word “wild” in it?) The frittata was overcooked and fairly dense inside. The fingerling potatoes it came with weren’t seasoned at all. (And salt and pepper is not on any of the tables…you have to ask for it.) And the buttermilk biscuit I selected for my bread choice was way overbooked. Almost dark brown on the outside. Very dense on the inside. I’m not the type of person to not finish a biscuit, but, well, I didn’t finish this biscuit.
On the plus side the French Press coffee was great. (Wonder if it’s a weekend thing, but they list a regular coffee on their menu but our server told us they only served French Press which is more expensive…I’d typically try a regular coffee at a place before getting all premium.)
My wife ordered poached eggs and the eggs were poached perfectly. So kudos for that as restaurants often get that wrong.
And they were out of the Avocado Toast because they didn’t have enough ripe avocados. I was before noon so that’s fairly early in the day to run out of something and it was the main reason my wife selected this restaurant over a couple of other choices in the city for this morning.
We also had a side of Tofu Bacon. More tofu in texture than bacon…the exterior of the thin tofu strips was a bit more like a subtly sweet BBQ sauce. Not bad on it’s own terms but hard to classify it as “bacon-like”.
Our son LOVED the fresh-squeezed lemonade and anything that causes a 7 year old to roll his eyes back in ecstasy is certainly worth mentioning.
Very popular place. Very expensive for breakfast (over $60 for 2 meals plus a bagel, potatoes and lemonade for our son.)
Could be the chef was having an off day (or off period of 10 minutes) when preparing my meal. I hope so.
