I absolutely adore Blackbird; the ambiance, the service, and the food. I have never had anything less than a stellar breakfast.

I've been more than 2 dozen times (!!).

The regular menu is incredible...the oxtail hash eggs beni is out of this world. Everything, and I mean everything, is freshly made, and the detail to even the smallest side is amazing.

Today I had a special of eggs scrambled with black trumpet mushrooms and a "soffrito" of ham, onion, and peppers. Served alongside was an amazing corn pudding that came out in 3 layers: they put a bit of squash puree in it, so the bottom was dense and sweet, the middle was creamy, and the top a crispy bit of corn bread. To bring it all together was a deeply seared broccoli raab with garlic.

Amazing!

A few weeks ago I had a special that was similar, though the scramble had smoked pork and chanterelles, with a side of potato and gruyere cake, and seared kale.

Yum!
