Niagara Street Cafe for brunch - raw spinach on eggs florentine?

meowmix | Jun 25, 2006 03:06 AM

Last Sunday my friend and I went to the Niagara Street cafe for brunch. I ordered the eggs florentine which came with a choice of home fries or salad. I chose the salad. I wish I hadn't because the dish was served with raw spinach on top of biscuits topped with sauce. I asked the server why the spinach was raw when it should be cooked. He told me that it's supposed to be served raw (not true) and that other restaurants cook the spinach because they're not using "organic" spinach so it's probably bitter. The server was very nice but this is not true. The spinach should be cooked in butter. Of course there is artistic license but if I'd known the whole plate would be mostly salad I would have passed.
