I have raved about 8407 Kitchen Bar in the past. But I only had been there for lunch and dinner. Their attention to detail and flavor may not carry over to their brunch. My daughter and I ate there for a Sunday Brunch and I was very disappointed. The menu looks appealing but they failed to execute on at least two items.
My daughter had the house smoked salmon and potato pancake and I had the Shrimp and Scrambled eggs. Her salmon was delicious - perfectly smoked - but the potato pancake was ice cold. She didn't say anything to me until she was almost done (she hates complaining about restaurant food) but she finally admitted that it really detracted. I am assuming that the pancake wasn't supposed to be piping hot but rather room temperature. But at ice co,d it just tasted greasy.
My Shrimp and Eggs were flavorless. The shrimp were fine but the dish was supposed to come with Hollandaise Sauce and that was more like wallpaper paste. There was no lemon flavor at all and the eggs had no seasoning. I never put salt on good but I liberally doused the eggs with salt and even some healthy squirts of lemon to try to bring out the flavor but it wasn't enough.
The Bloody Mary was fantastic as was the Carmelized Banana Napolean. But overall the meal was disappointing. This was the first time I wasn't raving about a meal at 8407 - I hope it is not a sign of the future.
