Laurenzo's for brunch last Sunday
Awesome brunchfor this Laurenzo's first timer.. Went on a recent Groupon certificate.. GF had the eggs benedict w/large amt of lump crab.. I had the French Dip sandwich, stacked high with their signature prime rib, sliced thin.. Had some of the best seafood gumbo as a starter.. I'll admit,, a week after a visit to New Orleans, Laurenzo's has the gumbo to beat.. chock full of seafood in a dark roux.. The bread pudding desert w/hagan das vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce was really delish! Bought a couple more groupon certificates after our meal ($25 for $50 dollars of food). Nice warm ambiance,, plasma tv's placed around the bar and open kitchen. To top it off, watched the final minutes of the Texans wins against the Bengals.. Din't realize but the Laurenzo's of Ninfa's and El Tiempo fame are related to the Mandola's. The food and service is top notch.
