76: Lobster and Eggs from Eat Street Social


You didn't come to brunch to get steel cut oats. You didn't rouse your lazy bones, make yourself marginally presentable, and haul ass to meet your brunch bunch just to order a bowl of oatmeal. Oh, it's the healthier choice? Oh is it? No one cares. This is brunch and you better put up or shut up.

You with us now? Good.

Get the lobster and eggs. Why? Here's why: soft scrambled eggs, butter-poached lobster, and fresh herbs, served on a frickin' croissant. Not a mild-mannered English muffin. Not whole wheat toast. A no-holds-barred, all-the-butter-you-have, golden, flaky croissant.

When we first saw this on the menu at Eat Street Social, we snorted with astonishment. Who the hell do these people think they are? Then we got real for a minute. We're adults, dammit. We're fully fledged citizens of the brunching world and we've earned the right to order whatever the hell we want.

Lobster and eggs, please.
