But for the location and ambient dialogue, the food speaks to you as if you were seated at Les Halles or proximate to the Hotel de Ville. Went for brunch, on a lark, to this restaurant in the "developing" Uptown area. Our party enjoyed three dishes: smoked trout hash, croissant sandwich, and eggs benedict. The most remarkable characteristics were the authenticity of the meals and the stellar, attentive service. The smoked trout hash plate, with its red bell peppers,
cubed fish, and bacon allowed you to distinguish and savor each food item independently, even when combined. The same was true of rthe croissant sandwich's eggs (any way you want them), vegetables, pesto and hollandaise sauce. Ditto as to the eggs benedict. The waiter appeared and refilled one's coffee cup immediately upon its emptying. Absolutely the best food and service we've enjoyed, anywhere. The pricing was modest for this exceptional fare. Don't be put off by the neighborhood's appearance; it is merely a venue for this gem. Public transport is easy, with service by the 22, 36, and 151 buses nearby; or take the Red line to Wilson Avenue and walk west.
