So I heeded the advice of fellow Chowhounds when I went to meet friends for brunch at Friend of a Farmer. I played it simple with Bluberry Pancakes, which were good with plenty of bluberries. My friend had the Pumpkin Pancakes with walnuts, which she said were very good as well.
My friend we were meeting up with from LA is a hollandaise afficianado (and very picky about it) and said the eggs benedict were good, decent sauce but nothing phenominal.
My lone friend who didn't heed the Chowhound advice was dissapointed with her grilled chicken & artichoke sandwhich on what. Dry chicken, artichokes were OK.
Thanks for the advice on what to stay away from!
