Abigal's was around the corner on Greenwich Street from our hotel so parking was not an issue. From the outside handpainted sign we knew this was going to be a cool place to eat. We weren't disappointed. It reminded me of Sarabeth's Kitchen in NYC, but more intimate and local feeling.
My son ordered the fromage baguette french toast which he said was the best he'd had and looked gorgeous drizzeled in syrup, topped with fresh berries. The look on his face grew more serene with each bite. When I saw steel cut oatmeal on the menu I had to have it, as it is the only oatmeal I eat and rarely do I see it in restaurants. This was a creation I am still dreaming about. It tasted like hot tapiocca, with plump blackberries and strawberries nestled on top. I actually salivate when I think of it and have tried to replicate that delicious bowl of oats, but haven't come close.
The service was prompt, friendly and just enough. No one is effusive; if you want something you can attract their attention, if you want to be left alone, they'll give you that too.
We left the beautiful looking pastries and breads to future patrons, as we were satisfied with what we ate, but oh how I wish I had some it now. Back in Conn. Abigals is now a wonderful, delicious memory. Thank You and continue your high standards of creative, fresh, scrumptious food.
