      winston1:
      I believe if you are a true chef you can and will make any sauces especially hollandaise.

    2. you might get it at some of the more traditional New England establishments, like the Three Bears, Cobbs Mill (most probably) or the Spinning Wheel.

      1. I know, isn't is ludicrous that one would even have to specify 'real' maple syrup. How can people even eat that fake sugar nonsense sold in the stores. It's so disgusting and unhealthy for you.

        1. I can't say their Eggs Benedict is "real" (I've never had it), but I know that Margot's brunch menu includes Eggs Benedict and also some darn delicious Pancakes...

            Perhaps, if I have to ask it's nowhere near me but for the heck of it, where is Margot's?

            1. re: laylag

              Margot's is a fairly new restaurant in the strip mall at Bull's Head in Stamford. It is directly across the street from Lord & Taylor.

          2. well, no hollandaise, and not real maple syrup, but lakeside diner in Stamford has awesome pancakes. and good waffles. for cheap.

              That's the key word....Cheap! Ergo, fake maple syrup and powdered Hollandaise mix.......
