As mentioned below I have been here many times as my local brasserie and have had mostly pleasant but also some mixed experiences in between 2010 – 2012.  However, brunch last Sunday has frankly given rocket fuel to their stakes as I had one of the best brunches on record as  the eggs benedict with truffle was a total triumph!  This was beautifully done with perfectly deep and rich eggs and although I thought the ham on top was a little too stretchy and dry to enjoy, this was a wonderful version.  I appreciated the intent to contrast the soft ham underneath with the dried on top, but if there is one improvement for this, I would say the top bacon pieces to be more brittle and easier / more enjoyable to cut and chew.  Still, it was utterly wonderful and I have not come across this anywhere before.

The pan au chocolate was freshly made as usual and that’s the other reassuring thing coming here, to have quality and freshly baked pastries and know that this has happened.  The french toast was also knock out and the best one I have tried here – the caramelised apple on top with a smidgen of cream obviously did not make this a calorie free visit, but then again, what else are Sundays for(?!).  This brunch has trascended my local Tom’s Kitchen to new heights and for brunch, made it join the patheon of brunch experiences with Al Qasr – Dubai, Chiltern Firehouse and The Connaught among others.
