Well I didn’t really cook too much this weekend, but I did eat. Jason and I woke around 7:30 AM on Saturday. Wait, no. Only Jason woke up that early, but misery loves company, so alas I awoken too.
We decided there was nothing edible in the house and would therefore have to procure nourishment at a public establishment. We settled on Raymond’s because we had never been and this restaurant is always packed. However, it was 8:00 AM on a Saturday and we didn’t expect there to be too many people waiting for a table that early. We were right! We sat outside and enjoyed the rain-less morning over some delicious eggs and avocado toast.
Jason ordered the Eggs Benedict, which looked delicious, but I didn’t pay too much attention to it because this Avocado Toast was everything. The eggs were poached perfectly. The avocado was creamy with a bit of freshness from the citrus and topped with a delicious pico de gallo. The dish was also served with several sauces and relishes. I tasted them but deemed my meal perfect so I mostly ignored them.
If you every find yourself in Montclair, NJ you can’t miss Raymond’s. Go early, beat the crowd, and leave with a belly full of happiness.
Stay tuned later this week for some more Blue Apron dinners. I can’t wait to try these recipes!
