Brunch at The Grove
I am sure everybody has heard by now that Ryan Pera has left The Grove for bigger and better things. I heard they have decided to not hire another executive chef and just let Robert Del Grande oversee the kitchen.
I went to brunch there on Sunday and ate a filling meal of skirt steak and scrambled eggs with tomatilla sauce. The steak had been marinated in soy -- I hadn't had a steak prepared that way in I don't know how long.
My dining companion had the shrimp and cheddar grits. The grits were so cheesy, it was like eating mouthfuls of pure cheddar. Good luck to Ryan. I hear he is going to open up a grocery in the Heights that only sells local products. Cool!
