Breakfast 2.0

Fusion cuisine comes to the breakfast table at Griddl, an upscale new downtown eatery. “We’ve reimagined the humble house of pancakes viaΒ the aesthetic of minimalist fine dining,” explains executive chef Dirk Smirkley. “Our signature dish is pancakes made with artisanal stone-ground turnip flour and free-range quail eggs, lightly drizzled with authentic Vermont maple syrup drawn from trees on the Ben and Jerry’s estate. It’s a hearty stick-to-one-fifth-of-one-of-your-ribs breakfast.”

    A bit pricey, but might be worth it if you get a kitty as a dining companion.

    Kitty’s thinking – $29.95 and no utensils?

      Chef Dirk Smirkley says “Utensils are so 2009! Plus then we’d have to wash them.”

      I love kitty’s ‘Where’s Waldo’ T-shirt.

    Artisanal pancakes? Aren’t they all? Can I get cinnamon sugar on mine? Vietnamese cinnamon? Coffee included? What’s the calorie count, not including syrup? Is the tip included in the bill?

      No lie; out at an oriental restaurant with a large group. A very sweet friend is looking at her bill and says, “But I didn’t have any of the tea.”
      We paid the gratuity for her with no explanation. Forever after we have referred to the tea we drink as Gratua Tea. πŸ™‚

    Only the koolest joints serve food on other foods jar lids.

    • Smartypants April 26, 2016 / 5:18 pm

      And I’m sure they serve their orange juice in teeny Mason jars.

      • Kar April 26, 2016 / 7:52 pm

        Mason jars are so 2009.

        • allein April 26, 2016 / 9:56 pm

          I love mason jars! They’re perfect for my yogurt and oatmeal, and homemade chocolate syrup.

          I even have a tiny jar that would be perfect for OJ to go with kitty’s breakfast. (It holds about 1.5 ounces. I use it to bring salad dressing to work.)

    I think this is more like Breakfast 0.0002

    $29.95 and no utensils? πŸ˜€ Reminds me of the time we went to eat at an authentic Ethiopian restaurant with a group of friends. My poor husband was chocked by the fact he had to eat with his fingers. LOL!

    And who is the hairy-chested one behind our
    esteemed client, the sommelier of syrup?

    • Kar April 26, 2016 / 7:54 pm

      I’m hoping that’s the daddy. Otherwise we may need to discuss turtle necks, Nair or chest waxing with the lady of the house.

    Chef Dirk Smirkley?!?!? Mike, I love the way your mind works. I have met Chef Smirkley a couple of times in some fancy and expensive restaurants, the kind where you’re served a large classy plate with two spoonfuls of unidentifiable food in the center, covered with a sauce and decorated with strange bits of vegetation. If at least a Kitty in a T-shirt had been included I would not have balked at the $29.95 per molecule!!
