One of my buddies Vern mentioned doing brunch the previous evening and to call him Saturday morning so we can get all of our nutrients in before this sun fest of libations and college fun at the pool party. Well, duh, of course my partner in crime(not in real life crime) Deidra and I were up to brunch. We called Saturday morning, left a voice mail, "VERN--IT'S B..BRUNCH!" He immediately called back, said, "Let's meet at Ida Claire's--meet you all at 10:30."
My brunch buddy said, "Chef what do you recommend?" Chef Antoine replied, "Is this your first time? We have some really great things. What are you interested in?" Brunch buddy said, "Chef we'll eat whatever you recommend." Chef said, "Really? Well let me take those menus from you." I was ELATED-- a personal chef tasting menu for regular price?! Okay! to brunch!"
