Something is French? I’m bound to like it. Ever since Cherche Midi opened, it’s been on my list.
If I’m not mistaken, the place that was there before used to serve breakfast pizzas that we would order at work all the time. While losing a place like that is clearly devastating, Cherche Midi is a wonderful replacement.
As always, I try to make my brunch experience easier with Open Table, which allowed me to comfortably arrive right to a table reserved just for me. The atmosphere is lovely, with a sophisticated touch that is also highly welcoming and cozy.
Me and my friend started the day with a pot de fromage, a parmesan custard with anchovy butter toast. Although the mention of anchovy threw me off, you could hardly taste it. It was very savory, which I really enjoy at any time, even in the morning. Overall, delicious.
For the main plate, I opted for a classic egg choice. I ordered skillet eggs with tomato, roasted pepper salad and Vermont bacon. Definitely delicious, but I also kept looking at my friend’s eggs Benedict and ended up taking a few bites (duh).
This is a place I definitely want to come back to in order to try even more options in their menu. Service was also great, to me that always makes or breaks a place.
