Eggs Benedict at Rizzo's

by

comment

Rizzo's Diner in the South Main Arts District is taking brunch in a whole new direction. One example: the eggs Benedict, which Rizzo's gives a very Southern and very Louisiana treatment. The dish is composed of a crispy yet tender English muffin crowned with a perfectly poached egg. Any brunch dish, or any egg dish for that matter, needs to have a gooey, runny, and luxuriously textured yolk. Thankfully, the chef knows how to prepare eggs perfectly. Along with those two components are succulent slices of slow-roasted Newman Farm pork loin that are earthy, sweet, tender, and juicy. The entire dish is anointed with a Cajun hollandaise, which is subtly spiced and creamy and doesn't in any way overpower or interfere with the other flavors on the plate. It's a rich plate of food that is an excellent match for a slow Sunday morning. — Michael Hughes
