I asked my husband...


Let me rephrase that.

I led my husband gently to the answer I wanted to hear and on Sunday around noon we had brunch at the Brick.

You can enlarge the photo to see the menu, but what I focused on was the Tenderloin Benedict.  It's been a few years since we came here for Brunch and I seriously dream about this meal.

As you can see from the menu, they specialize in Benedicts :)

They do them well.

Very well.

Here is my meal.  Oh, my goodness!

I don't know if you remember the movie Annie, the one with Carol Burnett, but one of the little orphans says "Oh my goodness, Oh my goodness" in a certain way.  That's how I say it every time I think it.  Sometimes I even say it out loud that way, but to be honest, I don't sound like a 5 year old so it just doesn't come out the same.

BUT, Oh My Goodness!  this is so good.

I was offered home fries or grits.  I chose the home fries because Tom doesn't particularly care for home fries, so I figured I might be able to eat all of the food on my plate.

Turns out he LOVES the home fries at the Brick, after he had a taste.  They were tossed with green and red peppers, so he always gets dibs on those from my plate.  (insert wrinkling of nose here.  Not a fan of peppers)

 I've watched the movie Julie and Julia enough times that I should know how to poach an egg by now - maybe I should do that and make this meal for myself.  But honestly, for $14 and only having it once every couple of years, I do appreciate the hollandase, eggy, tenderloiny goodness being served to me.  It makes it a very special meal.

Are you hungry yet?

Yes, I am very hungry now! That looks delicious. I haven't tried poaching an egg yet but I too have watched Julie & Julia several times.

Making poached eggs and Hollendaise sauce properly SUCKS...take it from a Portsmouth NH brunch cook! Worth it to pay for yummy food, proper poached and not separated sauce!
Your breakfast looks wonderful!

The crab benedict caught MY eye. That looks really yummy.

My child, you are wasted in real estate. You have a serious talent for PR. I'm not a foodie, but I'm tempted.

Long time since I had Brunch.
