Well, I'm back...Had an unbelievable trip. As usual, I didn't get to some of the places I had planned but did get in a nice amount of excellent meals.
Day 1 Sunday Brunch (Bouchon): I arrived at my hotel at about 11:30. Well its not my hotel, I don't own it, but you know what I mean. After paying an early check-in fee(what a scam) I had to decide between brunch and a concert at the Brooklyn Bowl. I had been up since about 5 am EST so I was starving. I bypassed the concert and walked on over to the Venetian and Bouchon.
The place was PACKED, kind of surprising for an Easter Sunday. Thankfully as a single diner, I could walk right over to the bar and grab a seat. Otherwise it was a 45 minute wait.
I sit down at the bar, order an iced tea and peruse the menu. I pretty much knew before I even sat down that I had to go for the Chicken and Waffles. Plus a side of fries. Yes, I'm a glutton lol.
The iced tea had a nice flavor, didn't need any sugar, which is rare for me. Before to long, the meal arrived. The Chicken and Waffles were even better than I remember. The chicken was so juicy, it literally squirted about six inches into the air when I cut into the breast. The fries where nice and crispy, loved dipping them into the chasseur sauce. The waffles were nicely flecked with bacon, but not overwhelmingly so.
The perfect way to kick off this vacation. I was so happy sitting at the bar enjoying this dish. The food was wonderful, the service was wonderful, great start...
Grade: A+ (only for this day and for brunch, you'll find out why as these reviews unfold)
