The Hart & The Hunter

Last Sunday I organized a Blogger Brunch with local food bloggers.  We had a great meal at The Hart and the Hunter, a new restaurant in the renovated Palihotel on Melrose Ave. And guess what? It’s also a new fEATure!

I’ve been here for dinner and weekday breakfast and loved both, but brunch is where it’s at!  The biscuits are a must when dining here no matter what meal.  They come with 3 different spreads. Try all three together or separately.  I really like the pimento spread, spicy and cheesy! The biscuits are so buttery and soft, they are truly melt-in-your-mouth goodness.
I ordered the fried green tomato and crab eggs benedict ($18).  It was so decadent! The crab was deliciously fresh, and acidity in the green tomato added a bit of balance to the buttery hollandaise sauce and the perfectly runny yolk. Perfect for sharing!

Barbecued oysters and shrimp ($18)
I forgot what this was called but it’s a apple dumpling with bacon inside and cheddar cheese on top.  It’s a breakfast twist on a classic American treat!

Pecan praline pancakes with maple syrup and butter ($10)

Jamie from Green Beans & Grapefruit, Sarah from Sarah Bearclaw, and Puno from punodostres

Chicken cracking sandwich with fried egg, lettuce, tomato, and avocado ($13). I love the chicken cracklings paired with crisp veggies.  I welcome chicken skin cracklings in place of bacon any day!
Thanks to all the food bloggers that joined me for brunch! It was so fun getting to know all of you.  I’m already looking forward to the next blogger event!
