Despite all the snacking during Food & Wine, sometimes you just need a real meal. We kicked off one of our days with breakfast at Captain’s Grille at the Yacht Club. It was my first time dining here, and Matt’s first visit for breakfast.
The restaurant offers a buffet and a fairly basic breakfast menu, with a few not-so-standard choices as well.
I thought the Lobster Omelet sounded interesting, so I decided to give it a try.
The omelet appears rather unassuming, with a piece of lobster claw meat topping it. This piece ended up being the driest piece of lobster I’ve ever had in my life.
The filling, on the other hand, was filled with tender lobster meat and chopped asparagus. I was surprised by how much was tucked away inside.
A chive-infused cream was served alongside the omelet, and added a nice flavor and texture to the egg.
The roasted potatoes that came with the dish weren’t anything special, but were well cooked.
A salad of mixed greens was a bit heavily dressed for my taste, but I still enjoyed them and appreciated the peppery bite they added.
Matt wasn’t too hungry, so he ordered a side of bacon and a side of sausage. He was very disappointed by the three pieces of paper thin, flimsy bacon served.
The sausage, on the other hand, was more to his liking and a heartier value.
Breakfast at Captain’s Grille was enjoyable, but in the future we’d likely opt for The Wave at the Contemporary. Since we were staying at Yacht Club, we visited more out of convenience. I’d still like to revisit the restaurant at lunch and dinner, though.
