Look, I don't know who decides this stuff, but Troy Greenhawt, owner of Wild Grape Bistro, told me that April 16 is National Eggs Benedict Day.
Of course I had to wrack my brain about why, and my theory is that everyone who put off doing their taxes until the last minute and ended up at the post office at Midnight to get the last possible legal postmark, probably sleeps late and wants a big breakfast the next to recover and celebrate.
Sounds plausible to me.
But whatever your excuse, know that at Wild Grape Bistro, they'll be serving their Eggs Benedict until 2 p.m. At Wild Grape, they serve three different versions: ham, spinach and hollandaise over a poached egg on a housemade biscuit; grape tomatoes, avocado, crab and spinach on poached eggs on housemade cornbread and cream cheese, spinach, zucchini, red peppers, mushrooms on poached eggs on a housemade biscuit. Plus potatoes!
The obvious advantage of this timing instead of the usual pre-noon brunch hour, is that it's totally legal to have a bloody mary at 2.
