Brunch hosted by a great old time friend and his lovely family (thank you again); it was a perfectly pleasant experience.
The service is the first thing that strikes you. From the reservation process to the welcome to everything else afterwards, the restaurant obviously has its service processes buttoned down.
The menu selection and food was as impressive as the service.
As we pondered what to eat from the varied menu selection, a tray of freshly baked blueberry muffins showed up at the table.
It boiled down to a vegetarian crepe or a brioche french toast.
I typically never eat french toast but a strawberry rhubarb compote and house made pork sausage medallions with apple sage could not be missed.
Everything on the plate was just excellent.
Black & White Collebaut Chocolate Pyramid with milk chocolate and pistachio mousse.
I thought, just for the blog, I should try this.
Unique it was. The pyramid was beautifully crafted, but hard. Once cracked open, you could see the pistachios in the mouse, but the taste was definitely chocolate. Well done.
Very pleasant indeed.
