To make a long story short. I was at Cask and Larder last week for brunch and I had to go again. What an amazing place. I wanted to take pics of the restaurant but was so obsessed with the food I went right to it. We got the menu and literally circled 7 things off the menu. Last week we had done the same thing. Family style always works with heavy duty foodies. Adrienne, our server, who we had last week just kept the dishes coming as we cleared each dish that came to us. We requested Adrienne to be our server again this week. She is very attentive and super sweet. So now let’s talk food. In order of appearance.
First dish was the Fried chicken & Waffles. Orange ricotta, maple balsamic, blackberries. Now understand, I have had these before in Hollywood California at the popular Roscoes Chicken and Waffles. Cask and Larder took these to a whole new level in taste. The maple balsamic makes your taste buds pop.
Bacon and eggs. Crispy vanilla pork belly, scrambled eggs, sourdough. I know for a fact that it took me two seconds to eat them because they were so good. I loved having a bit of everything and sharing with the family.
Frittata. Chorizo, roasted potatoes, swiss cheese, hen of the woods. This one was my idea. I had seen it last week on the menu and decided to try it today. So glad I did. Very light and flavorful. The chorizo made this dish for me.
Buttermilk pancakes. Ginger-maple sausage, roasted potatoes, Virginia maple syrup. I agree with my brother in law, these pancakes were just the right size and fluffiness. And the sausage flavor was intense. There were all kinds of flavor in each bite.
Bakeshop on a board. Profiteroles, muffins, coffee cake, apple cider glazed fritters. A perfect ending to a fantastic meal. A taste of each baked good. One word, WOW! The family favorite was the Profiteroles: A pastry filled with raspberry jam and peanut butter mousse.
Overall this experience was amazing. I would come here every Sunday if I could. Some reviews on line were negative. Don’t know what they were thinking and not sure what they ate because everything is so good here. Great service from Adrienne. We will ask for her each time we go.
