Breakfast at Fin & Pearl
When you think of the newly opened restaurant, Fin & Pearl, breakfast is not the first thing that comes to mind. Oysters, yes, bronzini, yes, but French toast, not exactly. So when I had a recent meeting there for breakfast, I was delighted. The place was perfect with the morning light quietly streaming in, the sound of espressos and very hushed discussions. It was peaceful and perfect--even before the food came. The menu holds something for everyone and I truly could have ordered most everything on it. I chose the Cardamom French Toast which was lovely, but my companion chose the Power Breakfast and I had a case of plate envy, bad. With wild rice, butternut squash, swiss chard and ricotta, it looked both hearty and healthy--in the best of ways. Check it out. Chances are you won't have to wait in a line that curls around the block. And you won't emerge needing a nap either.
