B. Matthews Eatery now re-opened!

After extensive, and we do mean extensive! renovations–everything from the layout to the hardwood floors, plumbing, water pipes and the menu itself–B. Matthews Eatery re-opened over the weekend. I haven’t had a chance to go yet, but will soon.  A friend tells me they have a marvelous duck and waffle dish on their new brunch menu!

Crepes & Burgers

‘In America, you can find a hamburer place every block or so…..in Breton, where I come from, you’ll find a creperie every block,’ says Herve, chef/owner of Papillote.  The chef makes these large and luscious delicacies exactly as his mother makes them.  They are available every Sunday  for Papillote’s all-day breakfast, filled with your choice of sweet or  savory goodies including his own marvelous fig preserves.  These are a don’t miss!

Foxy Loxy Does It Right

The latest addition to the bountiful array of good eats available in the Thomas Square neighborhood is Foxy Loxy. It’s a café/art gallery in the old Pizza Rustica location on Bull St.  The folks at the recent monthly meeting of Green Drinks were treated to what several say was the best cocktail buffet they’ve ever had, and the group has, over the years, met at virtually every possible downtown area location. This time they were treated to a variety of nibbles, including slow roasted pulled pork with apple chutney, Chipotle-Pimento cheese pinwheels, tomatillo and orange salsa with chips, chocolate pepita shortbread, and a cheese and grape platter. Since then, I’ve heard raves about their coffees (all from PERC), their sandwiches, and especially their quiche of jeuvos rancheros.  The menu changes daily, but it tends to have a Mexic ana flavor, plus in-house made desserts that draw raves. The wine and craft beer list is impressive. Open Monday through Saturday, the gallery has a frequently changing array of  etchings, prints, lithos and woodcuts by local artists. More info: 401-0543.

A Terrific Burger at Sunnyside Up!

Two of our foodie friends had lunch recently at Sunnyside Up (800 DeRenne).  Now we know that Sunnyside Up has great breakfasts–super-fresh eggs, heavenly hash browns, wonderful omelets.  But we’d never thought of them as a lunch spot. One of my friends reported “best burger I ever ate!”, and the other said his Tuna Club ws the best he’d ever eaten.  Sounds  worth a trip to us!
