Kris is bananas for brunch

t says:  g and I met up with some friends at Kris for brunch the other weekend.  Our brunchmates were Kris-obsessed, so when they heard that g and I had never gone, their hearts broke (I exaggerate for effect …).  It has been a while since we’ve gone, so my memory has faded about what everyone else had.  <Checks his iPhone>  Actually.  That’s a lie.  I can’t remember what anyone else had because I was too busy focused on this:


I apologize for the quality of that photo, but I was trying to be nonchalant with my photo-taking (I didn’t want to embarrass myself in front of our friends … and I didn’t want to embarrass our friends in front of the restaurant staff, either).  And boy am I glad I did … because I totally housed this dish in a matter of 5 minutes.  These pecan-crusted brioche french toast slices are topped with caramelized banana.  It reminded me of a more elegant form of this monster (that I still love/miss/cherish to this very day).  Say what you will about how “boring” some nuts, French toast, and bananas are, but this was damn delicious.  All the textures were dead-on.  Give me a scoop of bacon ice cream up in there and I could have gone into a food coma a happy man … as it was, I ended the meal pleasantly full, not grossly full … until, of course, we split an order of the nutella crepes which were amazing (although I have to confess that the dish is really kinda-sortuva pretty obvious excuse to just eat nutella for breakfast).

g had some kind of egg dish.  If she was still awake at the time I was writing this, I would ask her about its details.  I do remember her being happy, though – happy enough to want to try it again – both for brunch AND dinner!

It’s still early in the game to make a call on Kris, but I have to say that so far, it seems like they’re going to make a strong case for us to journey south-of-South more often!
