Today, a few of my girl friends and I had a “girls’ day”. We went to the art museum in the morning and decided to get lunch somewhere in the downtown-ish area. Having struck out on our choice #1 (don’t know the name, but the building was empty as the restaurant has shut down) we decided to try Trocadero.
It’s a lovely place with nice decor and atmosphere. We had about a half-hour wait, but we didn’t call ahead and it was lunch time on a Sunday.
One friend ordered “A La Florentine” which is a toasted English muffin with wilted spinach, grilled tomatoes, and poached eggs with hollandaise sauce. Here she twittered about another aspect of her lunch. She also mentioned that the eggs were perfectly done, just how she likes them.
Another friend ordered “Parisian Garden Sandwich” which is a fresh baguette with balsamic vinaigrette, hummus, greens, red onion, cucumber, and tomato. She also enjoyed her sandwich and apple cider with cinnamon and orange.
I ordered “Stuffed French Toast” and it was stuffed with raspberry cream cheese with chocolate chips. It was delicious, except that it was swimming in maple syrup. Chocolate and maple syrup are not a great flavor combination, so I think I would have been happier if the syrup was on the side, but I just assumed it would be. Oh well. It was still delicious. Though as yummy as it was, I was unable to finish it.
My friends also liked their food, especially the baked potatoes that were served with the sandwiches.
