Yesterday was Nick’s Birthday! I spent Saturday making my first homemade birthday cake. The peanut butter cake with chocolate frosting was a challenge but was so rewarding.
Sunday morning we woke up and headed to Spruce. We sat down at a table in their library and there was a card waiting for Nick. We started with the cinnamon rolls which came out on a wood cut and was served with a fantastic frosting that balanced the cream cheese and sugar perfectly.
For our entrees, Nick got the Eggs Benedict with a side of bacon and I ordered the burger. The bacon was just as tasty as it looked! The “benny” was served on their housemade English muffin and came with mushrooms, ‘nduja, broccoli, and mixed greens.
The burger was just as good as the last time I visited. I snagged a piece of Nick’s bacon and added a Jidori egg. The fore mentioned combination with the muffin bun, gruyere, and medium rare patty was fantastic.
At the end of the meal, our waiter brought out a birthday treat for Nick. The entire staff was so attentive and really made Nick’s birthday celebration that much more special. I highly recommend Spruce’s brunch and celebrating special events at this Michelin star restaurant.
