In a perfect world, lunch would be thus . . .

Perfectly ripe slices of melon gently embracing succulent parma ham doused in port. Pair that with a crudo raw tuna and seaweed salad studded with chopped mangoes and one perfectly fried squash blossom.  Oh - and it must be served on a heart-wrenchingly picturesque island off the coast of Cannes in the south of France.  Too much?

Well, if you must eat scrambled eggs?

Scrambled eggs with shaved truffles and a grilled baguette at Barbette - my go-to for weekend brunch in the 'hood. Just what I need to wash down the fresh baked croissant with strawberry preserves.

Chatterbox Pub Bloody Mary

In February of last year, we decided to stumble into Chatterbox Pub over in the Corcoran neighborhood of Minneapolis for a cold dreary late Saturday afternoon lunch.  We eschewed the board games and classic Atari play for some burgers and a towering good Bloody Mary at the bar with an antipasto-plate-on-a-stick shoved in it.  Given their BMs are 1/2 off from 2 - 5pm every day, it was a wise choice on our part, I would say.
