Anyone tried Hell's Kitchen's regular pancakes?

Hey I just tried the lemon-ricotta hotcakes from Hell's Kitchen in Minneapolis and, as many know, were amazing. It left me wondering if their regular pancakes are anywhere near as good. The waitress told me that had cornmeal in them. Has anyone tried them? If so, how do they compare?

  1. They are good. Their waffles are even better.

      Really? Is it just a belgian waffle or is it somehow different?

        It's a belgian waffle with a bit of cornmeal. I thought it was good, but not mind-blowing.

          As dotMac said, it's a Belgian waffle with some cornmeal in the batter. It's super-crispy on the outside, and it's garnished with a mix of fresh berries. I don't know of a better waffle in town.

            You know, I bet it would have been awesome with berries. I ordered mine plain.

      2. My wife and I are new found regulars there, the Lemon Ricotta hotcakes are so frigging heavenly, why try anything else? I could eat their peanut butter all day, too.

          "...why try anything else?"

          Because it's impossible to have anything bad there. I usually order a cup of the porridge and a piece of sausage bread, with the bread basket to share.

            Last time I was there I had a cup of the porridge and the plate of sausage bread. I was full all day!

            While I do like Hell's Kitchen it's not my ultimate brunch choice. I'm not sure I have a number one place, but I've liked certain dishes at places better than what I've had at Hell's Kitchen. For example last week my husband and I went to Maria's and split their Saturday special (eggs, plantains, sausage and beans) and added on a corn pancake. That was an absolutely perfect meal. But that probably should go on a different thread...
