I brought my little brother here for a nice early lunch in celebration of his straight A report card for his first semester in college. I was expecting some delicious, exciting food, but I was sorely disappointed.
The chef really seemed to like capers that day. 75% of the plates I saw leave the kitchen were all speckled with the little green orbs.
I had the fried oyster omelet. I don't know what I was expecting really, but what I got was less than palatable. It was a slab of pale yellow, lukewarm eggs, folded over a hunk of fried oysters, which I cannot imagine were fresh. They had that ""been frozen"" powdery texture. The Tabasco sauce I got on the side was a mystery. They had added something to it which made it incredibly sweet. Sweetness + eggs = notsotasty. I left feeling a bit queasy.
My younger brother, under my insistence, and his own curiosity, ordered the sweetbreads with bacon. It was the better of the two dishes, although it wasn't anything spectacular. He said they were a bit on the greasy side. I tried it and agreed. The bacon was good, but there was hardly a strip of it on the plate. It seemed more a garnish than a part of the dish. Once again, his plate was littered with capers.
We shared a side of stripped kale with pine nuts, which was probably the tastiest thing on the table. It was cold though, which was a bit off putting, but I don't know the laws of kale, so that may or may not be normal.
The coffee was pretty delicious though.
