Julienne's

There's no fooling you! Julienne's is not my usual breakfast joint. Located in uppercrust San Marino, Julienne's tables are dressed with cloth napkins, and there are stag mounts on the walls, antler chandeliers and a library-themed room for dining. And here I sit without my pearls!

As I was invited out to breakfast, I got my manners in line and prepared for some fancy-schmancy food. When the waiter sat the little plate of toasted rosemary currant bread in front of me, I did not shove the whole piece in my mouth instantly, although I really wanted to. It was that scrumptious! Everything looked fabulous on the menu, and I went with the French ham, grilled asparagus and poached eggs with Parmesan garnish over brioche French toast, surprisingly served in this little cast iron skillet. I almost forgot about the French toast hidden under the ham, asparagus and eggs, although the poked poached egg coated the toast nicely once I uncovered it.

The lunch menu also looked awesome, and I know I will be back. I'll be better prepared for Julienne's next time! They also have a delightful attached market, with sandwiches and salads to go, plus a wonderful variety of pastries and baked goods. Don't be fooled by appearances; it's all good at Julienne's!

    I'll say two $$. This huge breakfast was less than $17 with tax and tip.
