Walk across The Bridge from South Cast Plaza and step into the Macys Home Store Wing and Terrace by Mix Mix. It is a haven from the mundane, and a perfect spot for weekend brunch.
Of course this occasion called for a white peach mimosa (aka Bellini) and a lovely plate of Goat Cheese Toast with pistachios, seasonal fruit, candied walnuts, herbs and saba vinegar. So delicious that we were anxious to see what the main menu had to offer.
It was the Salmon Benedict all around – Fried Egg, brioche, arugula with hollandaise and house potatoes. We ordered a little side salad to accompany the Benedict. Kudos on the salmon grilled perfectly, hollandaise light and used sparingly. Side salad was mixed greens arugula, baby tomatoes, cucumber, radish, crispy shallots, micro cilantro with a yuzu soy dressing.
The patio was full so we sat just inside near the patio, and that was fine. Our waiter was friendly and accommodating, and he had an extensive knowledge of the menu. He spoke highly of the Duck & French Toast with duck leg confit and blackberries. We are definitely coming back for that.
The Other Thing – There is only one small thing that keeps this restaurant from being a perfect 10 for me. The only condiment for the coffee is whole milk. With so many non-dairy options available now and so many health concerns, I think this was an oversight that could be corrected. That, of course, is only my opinion.
