Cookshop Restaurant

On the weekends, my usual ritual is to sleep in until noon (or later), drag myself out of bed, and head out for brunch. I love brunch because it’s casual but the food is usually really awesome (especially anything that has to do with eggs). Cookshop had been on my list of places-to-check-out-but-it’s-too-far-from-transportation, but I finally dragged myself to 10th Avenue (unheard of!) to sample their brunch. Chris and I headed in without a reservation (they can be made on, but we only waited a couple minutes before being seated. When the waiter showed us to our seats, we looked around at the other tables and noticed that a lot of people ordered the burgers, so we decided to order a burger and something else. I noticed the huevos rancheros and decided to order it (did I mention that I’m a big fan of eggs?!).

My order of huevos rancheros:

The Cookshop version of huevos rancheros came with black beans, bacon, Monterey jack cheese, lime creme fraiche & red onion-jalapeño salsa. It was absolutely amazing, especially the lime creme fraiche. The eggs are baked (so the cheese and all of the flavors can melt together). Chris wasn’t as impressed, but I seriously couldn’t get over the fresh taste (the red onion-jalapeño salsa is also really good). I actually make a similar dish for breakfast, but instead of creme fraiche, I’ll put a little goat cheese in with my eggs (which is also awesome).

Chris ordered the Grass-fed burger with bacon:

The burger came with Vermont cheddar, twice smoked bacon, pickled red onion, chipotle ketchup, and fries. Vermont just makes the absolute best butter and cheddar cheese (fact, not opinion). Chris really liked his burger because it was really juicy, but I thought it was a tad on the salty side. Overall, I thought brunch was absolutely awesome (actually, much better than Five Points’ brunch, which is owned by the same person that owns Cookshop). It’s so good that I’d even say it’s worth walking to from Chris’ house (which is two avenues away!).
