Mad craving for Eggs Benedict -who's got the best in town?

    The Griddle's "Poached y Papas Benedict" is the best take on eggs benedict that I've ever had and I actually prefer it to a traditional eggs benedict. The key to the Griddle's version is that they use crisped and seasoned potato skins instead of an English muffin. THAT makes all the difference.

        I've never tried PDC's eggs benedict so can't speak to that one (though as a huge benedict fan it sounds like I should give it a shot). My favorite is Cecconi's; it's very traditional and always perfectly cooked with the yolk runny and the sauce deliciously creamy.

          I will also add my vote for the PDC's Eggs Benedict. If you are open to a variation on the theme, Jar has a terrific Lobster Benedict with Char Sui, pea tendrils and a lobster bernaise.

            Pacific Dining Car does offer a good version, but I think the version (or versions) at Bottega Louie are better

              Fourth, especially if you get one of PDC's meatless expanded-definition Benedicts -- e.g.: Eggs Sardou (artichoke bottoms over creamed spinach, topped with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce) or Eggs Ranchero (corn tortillas topped with eggs, avocado, cotija, and "Spanish sauce") -- and have the very nice breakfast fillet on the side. The staff at both locations is quite friendly, so I'm confident you could select any reasonable combination of ingredients from their list of egg dishes and create your own private Benedict (24 hours every day).

                Third for the PDC.

                  Second PDC (there's also a SaMo location) and I'll add a vote for any of the benedicts at Square One, although the salmon benedict is especially eggsellent.

                    I love the salmon benedict at square one. Instead of a muffin it's on top of a latke.
