It has been named one of the top 100 brunch places in America. Oh, and one more thing: They created bananas foster.
We'll get to that in a second. Let's start with brunch.
I ordered "Eggs Sardou," which had Crispy Artichokes, Parmesan Creamed Spinach, and Choron Sauce. Just, wow. I want more crispy artichokes in my life.
So, so good. Crispy and creamy and veggies and eggs. Just delish.
Then, we ordered bananas foster at the end of our meal.
It's prepared tableside.
Butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, dark rum and banana liqueur and bananas are cooked. The alcohol is added and ignited. It then caramelizes the bananas a bit, which is served over vanilla ice cream. Ours didn't really ignite. So we ended up with the sauce, but not so much the flambe. Still tasty!
And, look at these bathrooms.
