5 Good Eggs

Tina Borgatta | May 16, 2017 | Food & Drink Best of The Best Eat

Oh, how we love eggs Benedict, with that perfectly poached sphere atop a savory fixing, its yolk begging to be broken. Here, we take you on our own Easter egg hunt.
A Bennie-ful creation from Watertable

1. The Loft at Montage Laguna
Everything chef Michael Campbell creates is magic, just like his Montage Benedict ($26). He warms slices of mortadella to a crisp before building his Bennie. Two come on a plate with potato wedges and asparagus.

2. Restaurant Marin
Bread lovers rejoice! Here, chef Noah von Blöm swaps the English muffin for a thick, beautiful slice of brioche, then handfries a Dungeness crabcake and oven poaches the egg ($26).

3. SeaLegs Wine Bar
We love owner Alicia Whitney’s desire to please a diverse range of tastes, and it seems only fitting that a sensational veggie Benedict ($16) graces the menu. An English muffin is layered with roasted tomatoes and sauteed spinach, then finished with the egg and hollandaise, plus homestyle taters.

4. Watertable
The choices are plentiful at the Hyatt Regency H.B.’s signature resto. You’ll find rich orbs atop all kinds of veggies, a crab hash or even a bacon-maple waffle and fried chicken ($16-$18).

5. The Winery Newport
Chef Yvon Goetz knows good tastes, and he’s offering a trifecta of them with his Benedict ($20): crispy pork belly, lump crab or smoked salmon. The sauce? Sundried tomato hollandaise, of course!
