Entrée selections include quiche maison, a deep dish with house smoked bacon, spinach, mushrooms, parmesan cheese, Hollandaise and a petite salad; paillard de poulet, pan-seared Jidori chicken breast served with gnocchi, wild rocket and shaved fennel salad and tarragon garlic sauce; saumon “royal,” fresh King salmon with sorrel sauce and roasted spring vegetable ragout; steak frites, a petite New York steak served with Bearnaise sauce, arugula salad and Bohème pommes frites; raviolis maison, shiitake and oyster mushroom raviolis with sautéed fresh spinach and tomato relish with fines herb sauce; eggs benedict, made with either crab cakes or Canadian bacon on a Wolferman’s English muffin with poached eggs and Hollandaise sauce, served with rosemary roasted potatoes; or savory belgique prosciutto waffle topped with fig jam, arugula, Gruyere cheese and fried egg.
