"Get me on the court and I'm trouble"..... Meme

  When you start your day and you want to make the most of it start with the breakfast of champions. If you just took a few beatings on the basketball court, start with two. Your breakfast of champions can be anything you want it to be. Some days for me it is a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich on a cinnamon raisin bagel. On other days it is fried fish with collards and yams. This past Sunday it was griddle cakes with shaved foie gras.
  Meme is a restaurant with a my kind of menu. If I have difficulty deciding because it is all tempting you have done a great job. Chef David Katz has designed such a menu. He also provided me with some great fried chicken a few months back. This month and this brunch was about foie gras and he delivered again. A side of Benton's bacon, and a cup of my favorite coffee, Illy, almost helped me forget my 0% shooting. I was tempted to have a second order to help ease the pain of loss, but I had more foie to eat.

  2. Didn't get the griddle cake pairing at first but then I recalled having seared goose liver bathed in a chambourd reduction that was soaked up by a dais of gritty, yet soothingly sweet cornbread. This last aspect only added to the foie gras/chambourd synergy, a holy fuck- I was at The Abbey in Atlanta - liaison of lacquered berry and fatty overindulgence.

    And I'm digging the non-traditional breakfast of fried fish, collards, and yams. Other than conditioning, there's no legitimate reason to eat a certain food at a certain time. My BoC before 8am-8pm college days was spaghetti, pork, and meatballs. Now, my neighbors on Washington Ave are calling to me bright and early with brimming bowls of pho.
