I seem to be on a toast kick this week. I bought a loaf of some seven grain thing that toasts beautifully, even in my office's crappy toaster. And it soaks up lots of butter. Enjoyed with a side of blueberries.

Tried the pain au chocolat at Ici in Fort Greene today. Eh. In Brooklyn, Jacques Torres' is better. Ici is a nicer place for breakfast, though, esp. in the garden.

Big fat heirloom tomato, sliced. Slices of ricotta salata. Chopped field basil (tree basil?), EVOO, salt and pepper, slice of ciabatta, coffee.

Leftover smoked chicken quesadilla from the Santa Fe Grill in Brooklyn. Delish.

Really?

I've never been to the Santa Fe Grill depsite walking past it almost every day for some seven years. I take it that it is worth a visit?

I'd never been there before, but I liked it. We drank more than we ate, so can only comment on the guacamole (spicy and very good), the chips and salsa (fine), and that quesadilla - which was excellent. It wasn't too gloppy, so you could actually taste the tortilla. Nice, casual Tex-Mex place with a good vibe.

I used to go there when I lived in the Slope. It's a solid place - good margaritas and some good food. Fun, too. Casual. Bar scene on the weekends.

They are a type of white peach, quite nice.

They call them donut peaches here, and I find them reliably sweet and enjoyable. I have been buying boxes of quite small ones from Grace Market on Avenue A - eat them like peanuts.

I'm on the lookout for those Italian onions that look just like they've been sat on like that as well. Or is it still too early?
