Neighborhood Favorite: Baltaire
Keep in mind, the lunch menu is available on weekdays only. We always obsess over menus before actually arriving at the restaurant, so we were a little disappointed when we found out that the lunch menu we were excited about is replaced with the brunch menu on weekends. Nothing a little begging for mac n' cheese (SO good!) even though it's not on the menu and bourbon juleps can't fix!
Keep reading to find out what we ordered & get ready to salivate.
We've always wanted to go to the Kentucky Derby, but for now we can settle on delicious (& strong!) Baltaire Bourbon Juleps. They let you choose between bourbon, gin, rum, rye, tequila and vodka.
We split the Chilequiles Verde (how picture-perfect are those eggs?!) in addition to our beloved Mac and Cheese.
& our absolute favorite? The LEGENDARY Baltaire Mac and Cheese. This is the best mac n' cheese that money can buy for just $8 at lunch and $10 at dinner. It is baked in the same dish you eat it out of, topped with crunchy crumbs & chives, and so deliciously creamy. And for seafood lovers, you can add lobster (+$8) and king crab (+$10).
We thought the only good beignets in California were at Café du Monde. Yes, those are insanely good, but since we don't live walking distance to Disneyland, we'll opt for the Powdered Beignets at Baltaire – complete with three different dipping sauces: vanilla, chocolate & espresso. YUM!
