Hillel posted his write-up of Coupage on TastingMenu recently. They were also reviewed by Gourmet this month and has been fairly crowded lately.
This past week we saw they were offering weekend brunch and this morning we decided to give it a try. Fen had the French toast, Kat got their eggs Benedict and I tried their “chicken fried steak”. All of these were done in a style that was based on these classic brunch dishes but jazzed up in interesting ways. The French toast was really light and came with candied kumquats and date butter. The eggs Benedict had a great hollandaise sauce and were on top of little egg-spinach soufflÃ© things instead of English muffins. And my chicken-fried steak came with great mashed potatoes and a really nice French-style sauce. All three were excellent.
The prices were a bit higher than the typical local brunch place ($15 vs. $9) but the preparations were higher-end. I’m pretty excited that it looks like we have a new great special occasion brunch place and its right in the neighborhood.
