Eat

With Stanley closed for renovations, I was at a loss for a good breakfast spot in the quarter. Well, no more. I tried Eat (on Dauphine) for the first time this weekend, despite its odd name and having displaced another favorite, the Quarter Scene Restaurant. I am not hesitant to say that it is one the best breakfast places in town. The shrimp and grits were probably the best version I have ever had, with a mushroom accompaniment that was akin to a light marchand du vin. The Eggs Dauphine, with tender ham and devine hollandaise, was excellent, and I can't wait to try the other offerings. Like QRS, its byob, so we brought champagne to make mimosas for our brunch.
