Mme Zoe's birthday fell today, as it usually does on the Ides of March and this year we were happy that a new Scandinavian restaurant was in town (Mme Zoe being Danish on her Dad's side).
The Brunch menu is interesting but with an exception of a herring plate, not very Scandinavian. Lovely room, attentive service (easy street parking) and quality cutlery, plates and chairs (very comfortable). Ordered lemon ricotta pancakes - delicious but only three pancakes were not enough. Mme had the three meat hash which was not ground hash with three meats but chopped with a couple of eggs on top. Had to ask for toast (2 slices rather than a bread basket). Mimosas good in good quality glasses. Other guests also had hash and the Crocque Madame. However when I came home I had to eat a cup of soup (Liptons) and a rye crisp with Ikea cod roe spread on it.
Would we return? I prefer Joe's for brunch because you really feel like you are having a brunch rather than a sparse repast. Would be interested in other Hounds' experience.
$120 including tip for four people.
