It's a little-known fact that dessert specialist Antoinette also serves up a worthwhile brunch. They've recently refreshed their menu, and while signature mainstays like their egg-cellent egg gratin have been retained, they've added a couple of newbies that are absolutely smashing. Best of all, their breakfast eggs are available all-day, all-week.
The Fried Eggs with Ratatouille ($16.50), choc-a-bloc with tomatoes, onions, zucchini and peppers, was sided by silky ribbons of serrano ham, crusty levain bread and balsamic-dressed mesclun.
The L'oeufs en Meurette ($17.50) was a duo of poached eggs swimming in a delicate red wine sauce littered with bacon lardons, sauteed mushrooms, and pearl onions. Toasty levain bread were on hand to mop up every last bit of the sauce, while the house salad lent a piquant contrast.
The Wagyu Agnolotti ($28) of pasta pockets stuffed with ricotta, blanketed in a wagyu beef ragout and showered with parmigiano shavings, was rustic and hearty.
