Brunch at the Independent

bear | Jun 30, 2007 12:38 PM

Three of us had brunch at the Independent today. They are now serving at 10 on Sat. and 11 on Sun. We were there about 10:30 and no one else was in the place.

My husband and I had eggs benedict, with a very decent hollandaise (I know, I know, Tony would disapprove) and a thick rasher of good bacon in place of the canadian bacon. The accompanying hashbrown cake was hot and crispy, if a little greasy. Our son had a solid eggs, bacon and hashbrowns, all quite tasty. The house bloody mary was pretty good, if somewhat underseasoned. Next time we'll go for the Hot Bloody Maria, with house habanero-infused tequila in place of the vodka.

The menu also included mussels frites, a baked reuben, fries with aioli, a burger, plus more standard breakfast fare like an omelet of the day and a croissant egg sandwich. I don't remember seeing any pancakes or french toast, though I could be wrong.

All in all, a very decent meal, and we managed to snag some great strawberries at the Union farmers' market right out in front.
