Eggs benedict – The Girl & The Fig

Eggs benedict - The Girl & The Fig
Poached eggs, applewood-smoked ham, hollandaise, Italian parsley, red bliss potato home fries, on house-made focaccia. $12
The Girl & The Fig, Sonoma CA

I was a little disappointed by this. The hollandaise sauce was bright and delicious, I loved the smoked ham, and the eggs were poached beautifully but the focaccia wasn’t toasted enough and got really wet and doughy from the hollandaise. The potatoes were also dry and flavorless. The small, chewy pieces also made them a chore to eat.

Heirloom radishes – The Girl & The Fig

Heirloom radishes - The Girl & The Fig
Mixed seasonal radishes, anchovy butter and grey sea salt. $7
The Girl & The Fig, Sonoma CA

Wow, David and I were a little surprised when they brought this to the table. I had expected the radishes to be tossed in dressing or cooked in some way. But it ended up being a plate a raw, cut radishes, lol! I’m not a big raw vegetable eater, but these were good I guess. After a while it seemed like work to eat them. I’m glad they came with the salted anchovy butter otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to eat much. I don’t think we even finished them.

Bread and butter - The Girl & The Fig
