Bantam & Biddy

Pork Schnitzel & Fried Egg

Both the egg and the schnitzel were nicely cooked.  But, the schnitzel was more than a little bit bland.

Poutine
(Duck Fat Fries, Local Cheese Curds, & Chicken Gravy)

Literally swimming in chicken gravy, this might’ve been acceptable.  But, that chicken gravy was excruciatingly bland.

Batdorf & Bronson Coffee

The coffee was the highlight of our meal… by far.

Studio Movie Grill

Long Island Iced Tea In a Fishbowl

How do you set the mood for a movie set in the 80’s?

Step #1:  Order Over-sized Long Island Iced Tea

Coconut Chicken Tenders

Step #2:  Order Coconut Chicken Tenders And Chicken Pesto Pizza

Can you believe this is still on a menu anywhere??

This was perfect 80’s flashback food for watching The Wolf of Wall Street.  We set the mood beautifully.  But, as expected, it was perfectly horrible to consume.  Fun?  Yes.  But, would we order it again?  Not here, that’s for sure.

Buffalo Trace Manhattan?  We hope that’s better.

Light Button For Service At Any Time During The Movie

What was the best part of the meal?  Kahlua Mudslides!

What about The Wolf of Wall Street?  Genius, pure genius.

Goldberg’s Bagel Company & Deli

Nova Eggs Benedict

Home Fries With Red Potatoes

Matzo Brei (Or, Matzah Brei)

Sweet or savory, this is jewish comfort food at its best.  This day, we sprinkled just the tiniest bit of cinnamon sugar on top.  But, we love it every way.  Basically, matzo brie is the Jewish version of the Tex Mex style of migas.  Or,  you could say it’s a bit like an eggy French toast scramble.  There are so many ways this dish could be served.  Top it with sour cream and apple sauce, or jelly, or preserves, or fruit compote, or maple syrup for a sweet version.  For the savory version, you might use a bit of extra butter, sour cream, salt and pepper.  It’s all good.

La Urbana

Spicy Margarita

Mezcal?

Or Tequila?

Lunch-time Choices

We must confess.  We had cocktails with lunch.

Guacamole & Chips

Snack Or Meal?  You decide.

Enchiladas De Mole

Roasty, toasty chiles and bittersweet chocolate combine to make a powerfully rich and delicious sauce.  Spicy, complex, smooth and so beautifully well-rounded, we’ll be dreaming about this for awhile.

Chilaquiles Rojos With Chicken

It’s tasty comfort.

Negroni Blanco

Mezcal, Breckenridge Bitters, M&R Bianco, & Lemon Oil

Dangerously good, the scent of lemon is refreshingly present with every sip.

So light and refreshing, this cocktail was pure delight.

A Taste Of The Cocktail List

Decisions, Decisions

Seared Scallops With Pumpkin Seed Pesto And Roasted Brussels Sprouts

The scallops were gorgeously seared and ever so tender.  The hint of the sea sweetness made for a delicious balance with the nutty, buttery pesto and deep-roasted goodness of these brussels sprouts.

French Toast With Strawberry Sauce & Bacon

Want something sweeter for brunch?  They’ve got that covered, too.

One Complaint For Georgia

Don’t get between us and Mr Sunshine, Georgia!

No cocktails until 12:30 PM!  Seriously?  12:30PM?!?!  Brunch is half over by that time!  What’s up with that, Doc?  We wanted to cry.  (Clearly, we’re late sleepers.  It’s taken years for us to notice this simple fact… or law, whatever.)

This is another place to add to the top of our Love It list.

Honey Bits

Custard With Slivered Almonds

Crescents Filled With Sweet Bean Paste

Stuffed With Mango Custard

And, Doughnuts?

No, they’re not really doughnuts.

They’re Hokkaido cream buns.  That’s a super fluffy, barely sweet yeast bun.  Here, they’re cut into doughnut shapes and covered in white chocolate candy coating.

Our favorite?  The sweet bean paste filled crescents were the clear winner.

The crumbly green tea butter cookies (in to-go box) were a very close second.

And, we expected the mango custard to be another easy favorite.  But, sadly, we weren’t crazy about the flavor or texture.

Lotus Pastry

Our Italian grandmother would have loved those snail shaped balls of dense dough to dip in her coffee.  She used to make something very similar to these.  But, she would make S shapes and twists to dip into her coffee and milk.  They were perfect for her elderly stomach and taste buds.  These were a bit too plain for our taste, though.  The next time we get the flu, we’ll be sure to buy more of these.

Passion Fruit Green Tea With Popping Lychee Boba

The passion fruit green tea had a perfect balance of sweet passion fruit and green tea.  But, those popping balls were just too sweet.  They’re a bit like popping balls of diabetes in a glass.

The Capital Grille

Bread Basket

Sometimes, the simplest things make us happy.  One of those things would be the delicate crunch of coarse salt mingling with soft, sweet butter on a fresh bun that crackles with your bite.

Dry Aged Steak Salad With Mozzarella & Tomatoes

Those slices of steak were intensely rich with beef flavor and extremely tender with a buttery smoothness.

Lobster Roll On Brioche

The lobster roll was quite nice.  Though, we might say it was ever so slightly over-dressed.  And, the fries with deep fried herbs and garlic were crispy perfection.

What’s another simple little thing that we’re loving?

The Capital Grille’s grapefruit soda was divine.  Refreshingly tart, we love it!
