after hearing so many good things about craigie on main i was excited to come here. the bff and i decided to try out their brunch first since its rated “One of the ‘Hot 10’ Best Brunch Places in the USA” – Bon Appetit Magazine
the place wasnt packed. i made a reservation earlier this week and we were seated quickly upon arrival.
we both ordered freshly squeezed grapefruit juice.
and we both ordered House-Smoked Scottish Salmon & Albacore Tuna Rillettes with bagel and traditional accompaniments
this was pretty good. onion cream cheese + bagel + salmon and tuna ummmmmmmm. i also had two caperberries in my dish which i thought it was intelligent. ive never had it before, it looks like a olive and taste kinda like a olive but sour like a pickle and it has orange seeds inside. it def goes perfectly with fish giving a refreshing taste. the smoked salmon wasnt super salty like most smoked salmon.
the thing i also wanted to mention about this restaurant is that their service is fantastic. at the end of the meal i wanted to ask for check, so i turned around to look for our waiter. a guy (dressed in a blue shirt and didnt look like he’s a waiter) saw me and approached me immediately and asked me if i needed for help. i thought that was pretty impressive. i wonder if he just stands there and observe if anyone needs help. i also had to go to the restroom and i asked a random waiter where the restroom was. instead of just pointing it to me which he totally could he actually walked me all the way to the restroom, it was very nice of him to do that.
the meal was pretty good and very well made but i dont think it wowed me. i def loved the friendly and professional service and the casual relaxed atmosphere. that’s how every restaurant should be cuz i would not like a restaurant if they have bad service NO MATTER how good their food is!!!! even it’s best food on earth or from heaven!!!!!
this place gets 4/5 pork belly!
