If memory serves, your $200.00/per 1/4 pound is just about = to the $999.00/ per pound, Michael. Still a lot of $$$$ for a Road food joint!


mland: 
math class: $200 per 1/4 pound, would be $800 per pound.
There's two ways to look at that when compared to $1000. Either 20% less than $1000. Or, the $1000 is an additional 25% of $800.

so, $200 per 1/4 pound is a pretty good savings over $999 per pound.




OK math experts, how much would Michael's sliver of truffle cost with discount on a plate of eggs benedict?


It depends on the speed of the train leaving Chicago and heading to Columbus.

      I'll add Creole Kitchen in Columbus, OH.  They're takeout only, but seriously good stuff.  IIRC, only cost $5.


      1052 Mount Vernon Avenue Open: 7am-7pm, Mon.-Sat. (614) 372-3333

      Best photo I could find, the Eggs Benedict are bottom right: 
      edit: as a Junior Burger, I apparently can't add photos.

          I had no idea that Eggs Benedict was a diner staple in New England, or at least Connecticut.  Every single diner I've been to here has had it on their menu.  Quite a change from Kansas City, where the only non-fast-food breakfast option near where I lived (in the KC northland) was an IHOP, which didn't carry the dish.  (Funny how they can have a million kinds of omelettes, and offer eggs "any style", but somehow not have Benedict.)
           
          So far I've had it at the Starlight Diner, Mitchell's on Main, the Cromwell Diner, and the Olympia Diner.  Unfortunately I only have pictures of the last two.
           
          Here's the Cromwell Diner's version.  The hollandaise was a little gritty, and the Canadian bacon was nice and thick but a bit too tender somehow, as though it were processed.  The home fries, however, were exceptional:
           

           
          They also do an Eggs Florentine (listed on their menu as "Florentine Benedict") that is rather better, though I think I would have preferred steamed spinach to raw:
           

           
          The Olympia Diner's hollandaise was nice and smooth.  The Canadian bacon was thinner than Cromwell's, but definitely not processed.  It didn't offer much flavor though.  Their home fries were totally bland:

            M Hoffman version of eggs benedict is exactly correct...my problem with the dish is about one place out of maybe 500 (or more) knows how to prepare the Hollandaise sauce correctly.

              There are 11 versions of Eggs Benedict on the menu @ Anthony David's in <<<Hoboken>>> (you guessed it).

              http://www.anthonydavids.com/DR_Site/drbrunch.html

              They are a little spendy but worth it. Only live once...can't take it with ya....might as well eat very well along the way.

                There be some nice Benedicts there. And then there's the Sicilian omelet.

                  I guess by now you all know that I hate eggs and hate breakfast.  BUT I did have Eggs Benedict at Brennan's in New Orleans.  Superb.

                    I like eggs and Roz will not eat them under any circumstances?  She is sorta picky so I rarely cook eggs of any kind.
                    I put them in our cakes but nothing else period.

                      You of all people I would have thunk would adore the many uses and creations made possible by such a simple thing as an egg.

                        We can put Roz, Guy Fieri and myself in the same group........we just don't like eggs!  I do use them in cooking (egg wash for breading) and baking but I personally don't eat them.

                          Reviving a thread. The Pie Place Cafe in Grand Marais, MN moved from a mile out of town on Highway 61 to downtown Grand Marais displacing the Wild Onion Restaurant. They have a couple of choices of eggs Benedict. I chose the Northwoods with Maple sausage last weekend.

                            If you find yourself in Dallas craving Eggs Benedict, try Benedict's.  Check the variety of Benedict-style dishes they do: 
                            http://benedicts-restaurant.com/benedicts_dallas/benedicts_breakfast_menu.html
                             
                            We have been having Sunday breakfast there at least 20 times a year since 2005.  It never disappoints. 
                             
                            My particular favorite is their Eggs Cordon Bleu.  And, they do a better pancake than the Original Pancake House.
                             
                            Their other location is in Colorado.  Lucky them!

                                No kidding.  I would go back to that place every weekend to try something new.
                                 
                                My impulse is the Filet Mignon Benedict, although a part of me would feel guilty at covering up the filet mignon that way... I'm sure I'd get over it though.  :)

                                      I've usually seen the ´╗┐smoken salmon benedict called "Egg Norgwegian" or "Norwegian Benedict." and that was, for a long time, my favorit EB version, and I often made it at home - which pleased my wife, greatly, since she absolutely loves smoked salmon
                                       
                                      But then, as you know Jim, the mid-atlantic is famous for it's local delicasy, and that delicasy combined with the benedict model is, by far, my favorite EB version, called "Eggs Chesapeake" or "Chesapeake Benedict" (or similar variation) which utilizes MD style crab cakes in lieu of the canadian bacon. Some places, who make a good crab cake to start, just knock it out of the park. It's so freaking delicious - it doesn't matter if the rest of the benedicts look or sound appetizing, I am getting the Chesapeake!

                                        If you find yourself in Dallas craving Eggs Benedict, try Benedict's.  Check the variety of Benedict-style dishes they do: 
                                        http://benedicts-restaurant.com/benedicts_dallas/benedicts_breakfast_menu.html

                                        We have been having Sunday breakfast there at least 20 times a year since 2005.  It never disappoints. 

                                        My particular favorite is their Eggs Cordon Bleu.  And, they do a better pancake than the Original Pancake House.

                                        Their other location is in Colorado.  Lucky them!

                                        I could live the rest of my life just eating off of that menu!
                                        Wouldn't need anything else.

                                        No kidding.  I would go back to that place every weekend to try something new.

                                        My impulse is the Filet Mignon Benedict, although a part of me would feel guilty at covering up the filet mignon that way... I'm sure I'd get over it though.  :)

                                        Steak & Eggs have been going together since Salt & Pepper, Abbott & Costello. Mutt & Jeff,. Just get the sauce on the side!

                                            Marteen, this is what I do at home:  bring a medium pot or deep skillet to a boil.  Turn it down to a simmer and add 2 tablesoons of white vinegar.  Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, make the sauce with the Knoor brand mix, but substitute cream for the milk and stir in 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice; set aside and toast English muffins.  I use Thomases, original flavor.  Lightly butter them.  Cook slices of real Canadian bacon in skillet until lightly browned, just a couple minutes.  When the water is ready, "make a "whirlpool" with a large spoon.  With the whirlpool going, slide an egg gently into the water.  It helps to already have the egg on a small plate first and to use room temp eggs.  The goal is to keep the eggs intact, and cook the whites and leave the yolks runny.  Alternately, you can just do sunnyside up.   I would practice this before making for company lol.  Repeat with remaining eggs, 2 for each serving.  Put halves of muffins on plate, top each half with one piece bacon, then egg and finally sauce.  You can sprinkle the tops with chives if you want.

                                                Finally got around to hitting up O'Rourke's Diner.  Had a variation on Eggs Benedict, Eggs Mornay:
                                                 

                                                 
                                                The Mornay was a delightful change - rich and creamy, but not as in-your-face as hollandaise.  The thin slice of Irish bacon went with it perfectly.  The home fries looked attractive but actually didn't have a lot of taste to them; Cromwell's are honestly better. 
                                                 
                                                (One thing I enjoyed about this place was the perfectly-sized portions.  You felt neither stuffed nor cheated!)

                                                  My favorite benedict ANYWHERE is the lobster at Blue Heaven in Key West. One of my all time favorite restaurants and eating experiences.

                                                    I also like a good eggs Benedict, But I always felt the english muffin was the wrong choice of bread. I find a Croissant to be a better choice, its light, buttery, and brings it all together better.............Billyb

                                                        Nice!

                                                        I've usually seen the ´╗┐smoken salmon benedict called "Egg Norgwegian" or "Norwegian Benedict." and that was, for a long time, my favorit EB version, and I often made it at home - which pleased my wife, greatly, since she absolutely loves smoked salmon

                                                        But then, as you know Jim, the mid-atlantic is famous for it's local delicasy, and that delicasy combined with the benedict model is, by far, my favorite EB version, called "Eggs Chesapeake" or "Chesapeake Benedict" (or similar variation) which utilizes MD style crab cakes in lieu of the canadian bacon. Some places, who make a good crab cake to start, just knock it out of the park. It's so freaking delicious - it doesn't matter if the rest of the benedicts look or sound appetizing, I am getting the Chesapeake!  
                                                         


                                                        Sadly, Texas is NOT for crabs.
                                                         
                                                        Since moving here in 2005 I have ordered crabcakes twice; only one was truly decent @ the Oceanaire.  The other, served as a crabcake benedict at this place was spectacularily vile.  (The tiny specks of crab had a fishy taste and smell that somehow overwhelmed the grease and breading).
                                                         
                                                        So, on every visit to our place in McLean, a pilgrimage to G&M is always on our list.  For a Chesapeake Benedict, restaurants in the Clyde's Group do a decent job.

                                                            Thanks, Davydd! Hey, I'm headed that way in June...doing a loop from Telluride (3 day layover) and heading over Lizard Head down to Durango and then up 550...I was going to stop in Silverton at Handlebar's....but maybe I'll wait until Ouray. I love SW Colorado.
