Now that we are fully into the summer with good weather stretching out before us for at least the next couple of months, I have a weekend morning recommendation for you.
, is one of two restaurants in the country to receive organic certification from Oregon Tilth. It’s located in Wallingford in an old, converted home and has a sun-dappled patio that is perfect for a relaxed brunch. Brunch is served from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm with a small menu of delicious options. My dining companion and I opted to split Tilth’s Benedict offering, a Dungeness Crab Benedict and the plate of Mini-Duck Sliders served with fingerling chips. I thhink the eggs were cooked sous vide and were delicately soft and runny as they should be. The crab was freshly pulled from the sea and the sauce had the perfect lemon tang. I don’t think there is really any way to go wrong with mini duck meatballs on perfectly sized buns. I have heard, from a reliable source, that the small chips are cooked in duck fat.
I also sampled their special version of a mimosa dressed up with Grand Marnier. It was good but a little on the sweet side for my taste. Still, I wouldn’t kick it to the curb!
I’m sure that eating brunch inside the home that houses Tilth would be just as enjoyable, still I suggest that you take advantage of the outdoor seating while the weather permits.
