Sexy Comfort Food
The waiter at Two Saints restaurant at 12460 Memorial described the fare as upscale comfort food. I sampled the macaroni and cheese for lunch the other day. Sometimes the mac n' cheese here is seasoned with truffle oil, but that day it was studded with big chunks of crispy bacon, jalapeños and a "four cheese blend" that tasted like it had a lot of Swiss in it. The stuff was so rich, I couldn't finish half of it. I took it home and heated some up for a midnight snack.
My lunchmate got the tomato basil soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. The sandwich came on thick crusty bread with melted gruyere and roasted red peppers. There were also leaves of spinach layered in the cheese. The combination of grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup brought to mind the classic cold-weather lunch that mom used to make -- grilled cheese and Campbell's Cream of Tomato. I wanted to dunk the sandwich in the soup.
