How do you enjoy burnt french toast or anything really? YOU EAT AROUND IT! At least that’s what I had to do at Lexington Brass because this French toast was too good, to be bad…
I wound up at this quaint location ready for mimosas, pretty good service and a some pretty great dishes. The downside here was that they don’t have Mimosas. Wait, what? I’m sure they could have made one but they only talk cocktails.
So I opted for this drink with a name I can’t recall which was later replaced by the strawberry sour. Like the total baby sitter I am, I dreamt of guzzling champagne and orange juice as I sipped slowly from these sweet sweet drinks.
Our waiter was a complete doll, very accommodating but not overbearing unlike the eyes next to us who just couldn’t wait for us to look away so they could keep staring. Creeps. I decided on the French toast that was covered in oranges and grapefruit. Should have known something was up because I’ve never had grapefruit over my brioche. Just kidding, that’s not reason to second guess this so I bit right into this amaz- WAIT IS THIS “somewhat” BURNT?
And it was, so I sent it back. They brought me a new dish that was just as yummy and still burned. I’m talking charred all over the place, did they mean for it to be like this? I felt bad already that I had to send it back. So I did what any person would do when their friend is done eating and they’re feeling bad about the burnt French toast of their some kind of food blogger friend is pouting about, I ate it. Well I ate around it the best I could, it really did have some potential though. The citrus soaking into the bread was really tantalizing my taste buds but the
roof was on fire char was too much to bear and it had to stop. Chicken and waffles here are a go though so maybe you can opt for that. If all else fails and you really want that toast, do it! But tell them first that you like it medium and not well done.
