We had brunch on Sunday the 3rd on Zocalo’s cute patio. Unfortunately the brunch menu isn’t listed on the website (www.zocalo-restaurant.com) but the menu that is listed looks fabulous and worth another try not during brunch hours. Zocalo is right in the middle of the downtown mall next to a little french bistro Petit Pois that we are planning on trying too. The waitress was super friendly and the food was wonderful. Charlie’s mom ordered an arugula salad with strawberries and a vinaigrette that she loved. Charlie had “The Scramble” – eggs, onions, mushrooms, spinach – delicious. And I had a smoked salmon entree. The salmon pieces were layered on matza crackers, jalapeno cream cheese (very light) with some greens, tomato, and a drizzle of some green oil concoction (possibly jalapeno again). It was delicious and had a little kick to it that made it interesting. The food was definitely a little more costly but didn’t break the bank. And the vibe of the place was fun and quirky. Charlie and I are looking forward to checking it out again and maybe going even for the bar and to soak in the atmosphere. My favorite part: the bathroom – be sure to check out the sink!
