Alta Strada brunch

suepea | Nov 29, 2009 11:17 AM

We arrived at 11:15; were the only ones there for quite some time, began to fill up at around 11:45-ish. Husband had the eggs benedict with prosciutto cotto (i.e. cooked ham, not what we think of as prosciutto (cured ham or prosciutto "crudo"). Very generous portion -- 3 poached eggs with lovely runny yolks, and very tasty. I had the house cured salmon. The salmon was good, the dollop of mascarpone was a little skimpy. I was disappointed in the accompanying salad. The menu described a fennel and apple salad, which I envisioned being a perfect semi-sweet compliment to the buttery salmon. It ended up being a very lemony arugula salad with a miniscule amount of fennel and apple mixed in, completely overwhelmed by the aruglula and lemon. Had I known I probably would've ordered something else. $12 for a mimosa that was mostly OJ. Service was fine, friendly and attentive as usual. This is definitely a standby for us; we've dined there many times and plan to continue to -- just need to be particular about ordering.
