Yesterday was Jessica’s 32nd birthday. She was going up to Washington for a concert so we met for breakfast at Perly’s a Richmond deli. This place has been open for over 50 years in one guise or another. This was my first visit and I can’t believe that I’ve never been before. It is exactly the kind of place that we would have loved when I was in college and within walking distance of school. My friends and I would have spent every Saturday morning here if we’d known about it. My breakfast:
Pumpernickel bagel with olive cream cheese, smoked sausage, latke w/ warm applesauce and chive sour cream and perfectly poached eggs. Mike’s:
Corned beef hash with an egg and Russian hollandaise, a salad w/ pickled cauliflower. Jessica’s:
ET bagel w/ herb cream cheese and more of those poached eggs. They brought her two kinds of hollandaise – Russian and dill. Everything was delicious!
