A picture is worth a thousand words, right? Here are a few I’ll let speak for themselves.
It was snowy and wet today, barely over zero. (It still is – the clumpy flakes are blowing sideways across the roof past the window.) I was tired, and not much in the mood to cook. After dropping W at playschool we snuck off to have breakfast at Red’s Diner, a new spot on 4th St, beside the Rose
& Crown. Great location.
Great interior, nice people – the food came quickly, despite the fact that every table was full (we sat at the counter – a great vantage point for people-watching). Eggs Benedict is usually my restaurant breakfast of choice – something I’m unlikely to make at home, and a good litmus test for a new place. These passed easily. They got a quick turn under the broiler after being sauced, so that the hollandaise was pale gold on top. Good potatoes – real ones, not the cotton-towelly potato cubes you sometimes get as filler – and cheese sourdough in the lineup of toast choices. Thumbs up.
Next time: short rib hash topped with eggs. Luckily, breakfast is served all day.
Dinner was a pathetic parade of cereal, toast and Cheezies.
