“Who doesn’t like crepes?”
Weather you like crepes or not, L’Enfant will not leave you hungry. Their brunch menu is absolutely fantastic, not unusual for a restaurant of Myung’s choice (she never lets my taste buds down). Every time we go out I have a hard time deciding what to order, and always leave thinking ‘I must come back here’.
Needless to say, I didn’t have a crepe. To start I ordered the goat cheese tart. Filled with caramelized onions, bacon and fig then topped with goats cheese, this savory delight was the perfect combination of flavors in a flaky crust…truly a tart to drool over. This is especially true if you’re anything like me and crave salt over sweet on a daily basis. To be honest, I could’ve eaten like 6 of these things as my meal, which means I’ll have to attempt to make them at home.
Myung went for the frittata, while I went with the most obvious choice for myself; the lobster benedict. It’s the one food I could see myself eating 3 times a day for the rest of my life and be happy. Seriously, put lobster on anything and I’m in. On top of that, I love my eggs runny…so you can imagine my delight when I saw those words used together on the menu: “Lobster. Benedict.” Yum. Two perfectly poached eggs, with asparagus, fresh lump lobster meat and chives, on top of a toasted croissant. Heaven.
It’s yet another restaurant that I need to find my way back to, mostly to try EVERYTHING on their brunch menu. Should you be in the area, I suggest you try it too.
