What are the nice things about having a few days by yourself is you get a chance to hit restaurants and just take your time. This weekend I got a chance to visit off-hours one of my old favorites on church street, Chow
Normally a pretty packed and bustling go-to spot. On Saturday mornings around 10:30 you can have a great easy meal where you don’t have to rush.
Since it had been a while since I had breakfast there- this visit I went with the Ricotta pancakes. They come with a tart-sweet fruit puree and an extra dollop of ricotta cheese.
While not as brightly flavored as say the way Cafe Mystyque does with its addition of citrus peel. Chow does a good job with them.
Great lunch and light entree items keep me coming back. But be aware the volume when busy can be loud
