Welcome Gators!

Town House has a full Brunch thing on Sunday only and it doesn’t open till 10:30! That’s like the middle of the day! I could have Gatored another place, went home, then went to Town House Books. (I didn’t)

We got in LINE at 10:25 yes LINE. It was 2 Degrees out. They opened up and the line shuffled in. We were seated quickly and efficiently. Our server BEN asked if we wanted Coffee. Of course I do. He returned with Coffee Water and Extra Napkins. I LOVE when they bring extra napkins   10   Coffee was good   8   The menu is fairly short but it’s all non standard fare so it requires some decision making. So I sipped Coffee and made a decision for the starting round.

The place is DARK. It’s miserable for photos. No Music   5   They have Carpet   2   Don’t get me started. On the other hand it’s fun eating in a bookstore.

Ok Let’s get going

 

Oeufs St. Richard

Our delicious Eggs Benedict made with applewood-smoked bacon instead of ham, served with Creole potatoes

Hollandaise is the proper viscosity and Lemony. It’s good   8   The Eggs were prepared over medium. For some reason Town House doesn’t make poached Eggs. Curious. Anyway one of the Eggs was cooked properly and one was a bit over.   7   The muffin was un toasted UGH I’ll spare you the rant   3   The Bacon was good and crisp and not overly salty   8   The Spinach was good seasoned ok   7   The Potatoes were Scrumptious Roasted well seasoned well slightly spicy and finished with fresh Thyme.   8   Overall a good dish. I’d re-order this one.   8

NEXT

New Favorite

Baked ham, egg, Brie cheese, roasted red peppers
& honey mustard between two toasted English muffin halves, served with mixed greens & raspberry-poppy seed dressing

A good mix of greens with a good vinaigrette maybe a few too many poppy seeds   8   The Sangwidje. Muffin not toasted #2. Is the Toaster busted?   4   Ham could be hotter. The Egg could have been softer. The Brie had the proper funk. Sometimes Brie can be like the inside of a Chuck Taylor. This was a bit too McDonaldie for me. Keep in mind that I’m not a big fan of Sandwiches for breakfast. Overall I would give this a firm   7

And Finally

Tequila Sunrise

Raspberry, cream cheese & banana stuffed French toast, served with maple syrup & fruit salad

Fruit Salad Meh. Under Ripe Melon cubes   5   French Toast? Not. Unsoaked bread warmed on the grill. No soft custardy French Toast here. I was hopeful.   4   The filling was good hot and slightly sweet. Overall this was OK. A very generous   7
