Mother's Day Brunch

Wednesday, 16 May 2012
We had a lovely brunch at M in Columbus. Dannen made reservations and we were seated at a nice table with a great server.

The chef prepared a special menu which included Champagne Punch: champagne, mango, lemongrass, fresh raspberries. We started with that and it was fresh and light.

We toasted mom for Mother's Day and I read part of a poem by George Collins:

Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,—
  Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
  But only one mother the wide world over.

I ordered the Smoked Salmon Benedict: soft poached eggs, toasted brioche, caviar, hollandaise, asparagus, salad. I like the hollandaise on the side and the caviar was salty and rich. 

Mom tried the Chicken & Waffles: buttermilk fried chicken, seared foie gras, fresh berries, local vanilla honey. The honey on the chicken was a gorgeous taste combination. Salty and sweet? Yes please.

The presentation was gorgeous. Dannen ordered French Toast: peanut butter cream, fresh banana, caramelized bacon, warm ohio maple syrup. I didn't get a picture of that because he was digging in quickly (Hey, that's what I would have done!).

Dad ordered Steak-N-Eggs: filet mignon, soft poached egg, short rib hash, smoked bacon jus, bearnaise. 

The meat was tender and delicious! Wow. I'm such a foodie.
