Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 225: Hook & Ladder

Mr. E and I went out to brunch this morning and decided to try Hook & Ladder again.


We've been here once before with the monthly brunch group, and I've gone several times for dinner with girlfriends. The previous brunch experience wasn't great, primarily due to extremely slow service, but Mr. E and I were hoping that this time around would be more positive.

Mmm... not so much...

Unfortunately, we again had quite slow service, and the food definitely wasn't outstanding enough to overshadow that aspect of the experience. As I've written in previous blog posts about restaurants, I'm far more likely to forgive mediocre food if the service is excellent than vice versa.

So next on our list of brunch spots to try (or try again) will most likely be Shady Lady, Capitol Garage, The Porch, and Magpie.  Good fodder for future blog posts! (and hopefully good food, too...)
