On a recent Saturday, I happened to walk by L'Ouvrier just as it was opening for brunch—and there was no line. Perfect timing! L'Ouvrier has been open since last fall, but this was my first visit.
I chose the fried egg sandwich with bacon and aged cheddar. The egg was still runny, the bread buttery and crisp, and they didn't skimp on the thick-cut bacon. It came with a huge mound of crispy frites too. Joe had the basic breakfast: two eggs, house-smoked bacon, grilled tomato, toast and frites. Both were tasty and really filling (I barely made a dent in those fries).
Even though I rarely go out for a proper brunch (pho and dim sum don't really count), any place that serves frites with breakfast is definitely a winner in my books.
