Review: Sunday Brunch at Vitor’s




Today’s choice off the Breakfast Menu was Vitor’s
Today the wife and I decided that we could hit a place he have hit before and that we love. We got a late start again, as always. We ended up at Vitor’s. It is one of our favorite places and it is a pretty solid meal every time.



Restaurant:




Vitor’s is a little restaurant on the Westside. It has a pretty big dining area and a wait staff that can be touch and go sometimes but is usually pretty good. The place is clean and somewhat upscale. Usually when we go there is never a wait and there are usually few people there. They also have some great outside seating. The menu is a little pricey, but features some pretty great items like crepes with shrimp and the From the Sea Frittata which has crab and lobster in it. I have had all these things off the menu and they are awesome. Vitor’s is known for their French Toast which has been awarded the best in the city and is very yummy. They also have a coffee bar available with exotic flavors like crème Brulee.



The Food:

Ratatouille Omelet

 First we ordered an app, the breakfast donuts and then we went with the specials. I got a Ratatouille omelet, and my wife got the steak and mushroom omelet. We also got a dessert order of the Unforgettable French Toast.

Steak & Wild Mushrooms Omelet


The verdict:



The food was amazing, as always. The breakfast donuts, while sugary sweet were great as always. We ate those way too fast. We almost never order appetizers but they are too good to pass over. The table next to us also ordered them and we overheard one of the ladies say “it’s amazing how bacon and donuts can change your whole outlook on the day.” Those are words to live by if I ever heard them. The ratatouille omelet was tasty and filled with veggies. It had red basil sauce that was very delicious. It had squash and asparagus inside along with onions. I really enjoyed it. My wife’s steak and mushroom omelet was also good. Her omelet had a crème mushroom sauce and chunks of steak inside. It was like eating a stroganoff inside an omelet. My wife said their coffee was some of the best that she has ever tasted. She had the crème Brulee coffee and said she would come back for the coffee alone. The desert portion of the unforgettable French toast was just as unforgettable. It was sweet and tasty and we loved every bite.




Overall Experience:
I give the whole experience 5 out of 5 broken eggs:




The food was amazing, our service was good. We spent a little too much money but it was worth it for the good food. We always try to get to Vitor’s every few months and it never disappoints. We bring friends there when they visit from out of town. It is a very solid establishment that I hope is a around for years to come.

Recipe: Sweet Rice

Today's recipe was a family staple sweet rice,
Most people would call this rice pudding. Its about the same, but we tend to eat it warm, where others may eat it cold. We also consider it to be a useful addition to any meal, be it as a side dish or a breakfast. The recipe is pretty easy, so I suggest you try it for yourself.

Review: Lemon Ricotta Pancakes at Cheesecake Factory

Today's choice off the Breakfast Menu was Lemon Ricotta Pancakes and the French Toast Napoleon from the Cheesecake Factory

Today the wife and I decided to hit up the Cheesecake factory for brunch. We have eaten there once before for breakfast but that was so long ago that I did not have a clear memory of why we had never returned. A friend of ours really likes eating at the establishment and it had been forever since we ventured that way. The restaurant was of course packed to the gills but we discovered the secret of the bar area where, if you can grab a table, you can jump the line and get seated faster.

Review: Mimi's Cafe

Today’s choice off the Breakfast Menu was Mimi's Cafe


It was super hero weekend around these parts. Avengers dropped, free comic day happened and we threw a super hero themed birthday party for my little guy. I was taking the wife to see the Avengers today and my sister and her beau asked to join in. I insisted that we brunch as a pre-show event. I chose Mimi's because it wasn't far from the Mason Theater. I had been to Mimi's for dinner and the food was decent. I thought I would give them a try for breakfast. 
Mimi's is apparently owned by Bob Evans, which you wouldn't know by the ambiance. It appears to be rather upscale, but suffers the fate of many chain restaurants where they put way too many things on the wall. The menu is very bulky with a variety of  dishes. They serve breakfast all day, but you have to specifically ask for a breakfast menu after a certain time. They will usually hand you the lunch or dinner menus after noon.  
The service was interesti…
