Bistro 110 is surprisingly spacious inside, with several different areas of interest. Cute touches brought in the New Orleans feel, such as wrought iron hat wracks on the walls and traditional French white table linens. A little old fashioned for some, perhaps, but there seemed to be a decent amount of revelers presents for Bistro's final brunch. A four man jazz band stood at the back of the room, playing cheerful classics like "When the Saints Go Marching In" to the delight of the diners.
The menu offered a few options: a 2 course prix fixe, a 3 course prix fixe, or individual options. Brandy, noticing that a drink was only $5 with the prix fixe, opted for that option, while the other two preferred just entrees. Both Brandy and Biscuit sampled a French Margarita, a bright twist on the original with orange replacing lime. Bunny chose the Bellini, which was also quite lovely and a good opener to brunch.
The meal began with some fresh baked bread, butter, and black raspberry jam, which was actually quite nice. All three ladies commented that they would gladly make a meal from just this, the jam was that enticingly delectable.
Bunny picked the Crepes A La Fricassee, a savory baked crepe dish with plenty of cheese on top and chicken inside. Bunny commented that she thought this dish reminiscent of a cheese enchilada, but with more delicate flavors.
Biscuit ordered (much to Bunny's chagrin) the Voodoo Eggs Benedict, which came with smoked pork belly and voodoo potatoes. At first, the wrong dish was brought to the table (the Eggs Louisiana which is made with Crab Cakes) but the mistake was soon corrected. Disappointingly, the "smoked pork belly" seemed to be nothing more than sliced ham, but the eggs were poached well and the sauce was quite lovely. The potatoes were the real surprise, though. Appearing to be hot and spicy, they were actually quite creamy and sweet, having been cooked with bell pepper and tomato.
