Perdix update-Blunch -long

Tried 'blunch' about three weeks ago with two other folks. The vibe was fabulous...and it was nice to see the restaurant in a different light-sunlight. There was plenty of staff on hand and it felt relaxed and comfortable...a bit like you were at your best friend's parent's house. On to the food. We started with the housemade donuts. What a great way to wake up and get ready to eat. The order and size of the donuts was large enough for all of us to sample the rich cinnamon sugar flavor, but not so large that we didn't want to order most everything on the menu. Next came the shrimp with grits. Smart move to order for the table and share. The flavors of the barbecued shrimp and grits melded nicely. Each of us had 2-3 shrimps. Don't know if the side of grits is the same as what's presented here, but if so-I'd order them as a side if I opted to not get the shrimp. The table then ordered the crab cakes & beans, the omellete of the day, and the huevos rancheros. Of these, the crab and the huevos were standouts. Who knew that crab cakes could be so good for lunch-seemed like a plate of New England. Wow. The huevos are a must and clearly others agreed as every table seemed to have an order. Unbelievably, we then ordered the breakfast sandwich and the pb&j french toast. The sandwich was on grilled portuguese bread and was a wonderful mix of flavors. The avocado was perfectly ripe and somehow lifted this breakfast standby to new heights. The french toast was over the top...glad we didn't order this earlier as there would have been no way to eat any more. The jelly aspect is more like syrup, which is nice. If you like french toast and pb&j-and to be full-try this. Parking wasn't a chore when we arrived a bit after noon...found a spot about a block down. I will most definitely put this 'blunch' into the Sunday rotation.
