Truffled Egg Toast @ Inoteca

20110707-055614.jpg

I wasnt super impressed by the salads at Inoteca in the lower east side but I did enjoy the truffled egg toast. It consisted of a thick slice of brioche with a truffled egg (probably an egg stored in a container with a truffle overnight) and fontina baked on top served over sautéed asparagus. It also comes with bottarga. I opted for the original.

Jodie’s in Albany for Fried Chicken

If you haven’t been to Jodie’s in Albany, you should go, preferably on a weekend, meet Jodie and have a breakfast.  Clear your schedule for the rest of the day though, because the food is heavy and all you’ll want to do afterwards is nap and watch football.  There’re a few other things you should know: it’s tiny, they’ll talk your ear off, and get the fried chicken.  That’s pretty much it.  They only serve the fried chicken breakfast (get it with grits or with the eggs) on Saturday and Sunday.

I picked up the ricotta from Whole Foods the other day because the two guys who make it were there giving out free samples.  Its incredible and I would say, even if you’re lactose intolerant, its worth trying.
