fantasy breakfast restaurant

March 16, 2012 § 3 Comments

woke up this morning… wanting something truly delicious. sadly an awesome—i mean truly awesome breakfast place does not exist near me. i often muse that if i opened a restaurant it would be a breakfast restaurant—no dinner service, just an awesome breakfast served until late lunch.

here is the menu

benedicts: crab with tarragon hollandaise on top of brioche round // smoked salmon or house cured gravad lax on top of latke with lemon hollandaise topped with slivered shallots // florentine on top of artichoke heart with truffled hollandaise

tarts: tomato tart with parmesan crust // quiche lorraine // wild mushroom // caramelized onion with goat cheese tart on potato crust

eggs: poached or soft scramble with shaved asparagus, king oyster and shitake mushrooms, toasted sliced almonds // potato and caramelized onion fritata with some sort of soft oozing cheese on top // shrimp with bacon (or country ham), grits and a poached egg // duck hash with poached eggs // herbed baked eggs with sauteed baby kale, parmesean cream // soft  boiled eggs with smoked maldon flakes with brioche soldiers

sweets: tarte (apple or pear) tatin souffle pancake // pineapple upside-down souffle pancake  // goat cheese stuffed french toast // bananas foster french toast // super fluffy waffle with berries

breads: delicious buttermilk biscuit // cinnamon rolls // cheddar dill scones // raspberry lemon scones

preserves: mixed berry, meyer lemon marmalade

sides: viginia country ham, candied bacon, bacon, turkey sausage (sweet or spicy), merguez sausage

salads: shaved cauliflower with walnuts, fried cassava chips, lemon vinaigrette, green onions (or fried shallots?) // shaved heirloom carrot salad with sesame rice vinaigrette // shaved radish salad with lemon vinaigrette // mesclun with garlic sherry vinaigrette // orange supremes, al dente chiogga beets, shaved fennel, red onion // wilted frisee with lardons and a poached egg.

ok maybe this menu is too eclectic, and way too huge right now… some of it would move into “specials” and “seasonals”

Among other  things I will feature domestic hams

    So I haven’t been to your blog in a while… über deliciousness abounds… you are my food czarina. And what was that luncheon you attended with Warren Buffett, and how did you get him to flash signs??? Isn’t this the same thing you were doing in that photo with Snoop Dog?
