BISTRO CENTRAL PARC -CAFE
BISTRO CENTRAL PARC is a wonderful modern French bistro/cafe with... ATMOSPHERE! ATMOSPHERE! ATMOSPHERE! Ultra modern setting with comfortable seats, cool black concrete floors highlighted with copper trim, & pleasent flower arrangements throughout the restaurant ! TRES CHIC! BRUNCH was wonderful when went went on a lovely sunny San Francisco Sunday. The modern, clean lines of the bistro just shined in the brillant sunlight. It would look stunning at night! EGGS BENEDICT were the BEST, yes, you read that right, THE BEST that I have ever had in SAN FRANCISCO. The EGGS BENEDICT veggie version was perfectly prepared eggs over a properly cooked bed of deep green spinach with a soft touch of 'sauce'. The muffins were nicely toasted. But, back to that 'sauce' ! IT WAS PERFECT! Not too much. Just the right amount to add to the flavor and NOT sog down the muffin, nor the taste buds! HEAVEN!!! (see my photo) The EGGS BENDICT with SALMON was also beautifully prepared with just the right amount of sauce, and a good helping of salmon. Throughly enjoyed. (photo, too) CROQUE MONSIEUR- finely sliced ham inbetween two slices of toasted bread covered with incredible melted cheese. OUI OUI C'EST MAGNIFIQUE! (see my mouth-watering photo) The POMMES FRITES were like the wonderful tasting fries found in the cafes of PARIS! Nicely crisp and tasty! PAIN PERDU-'FRENCH TOAST'- This was a nicely prepared breakfast item, with a side of fresh fruit and creme anglais. Tasty . The service was a little relaxed, coffee came a tad late & refils had to be asked for repeatly, though, one would probally blame that on the sunny day. The waiter and waitress were so charming and sweet, it would be impossible to fault them in any way. We maxed tipped them for their service. Helpful suggestions: (Hence the 4 stars, and not 5 stars) It would be nice to have a full dessert menu at lunch. (We were so in the mood for creme brulee. It's a French restaurant after all!) Wine lists should always be offered to each table no matter what the time of day! The 'NO SUBTITUTIONS' of any menu items is a tad harsh! OVERALL the BISTRO CENTRAL PARC is a charming visit to a modern PARIS cafe setting with great food , lovely staff, and the forever charming CHEF JACQUES!
Eggs From Hell
Actually, these are eggs from the Coffee Table Bistro in Eagle Rock, California. On the menu they are called Eggs From Hell and they're my favorite. They add some kind of hot sauce concoction to the eggs and scramble them. Served with black beans, tortilla and homemade pico de gallo salsa. Also available is the Burrito From Hell which is pretty much the same thing, I just like fooling around with my food. :) I always get a side of bacon with mine. See it peeking in the upper left corner...
