Red Herring is the kind of local place that makes everyone wish they lived in the neighborhood. I’ve already become addicted to their brunch so there will surely be more posts about other meals in the near future. Whether you wish to eat indulgently or lightly, they have an option that will delight you. Every bit of fruit in their greek yogurt and fruit granola cup for $8 is juicy, ripe, and tastes as good as it looks.

If you want to indulge in a classic brunch plate of bagels and smoked salmon, they use bagels from their neighbor Belle’s Bagels, and those tomatoes are some of the best ripe heirlooms I’ve had the pleasure of eating in a long time, spinkled with just a few flakes of sea salt.

If you are in the mood for something classic with a twist, the two eggs with hash browns and mushroom confit for $13 elevates diner fare to something beyond anything you will ever find in a chain restaurant.

For those who want a combination of something good and something bad, their Breakfast Caesar for $13 with kale, romaine, bacon, poached egg, and tomatoes allows you to enjoy thick crisp bacon while munching away on kale.

Whether you sit upstairs or on the ground level, the friendly staff, stylish decor, and deft expertise in the kitchen, will make you want to return. I will be back 🙂
