Lunch today was at the beautiful courtyard of Piatti, which is quite near our condo. Many other guests were celebrating UCSD commencement, which is taking place this weekend -- they were in big family groups or groups of students hosted by one or two parents.
We ordered brunch: sweetbreads and mushrooms over scrambled eggs and "Uovos Benedettos" which is their attempt -- I guess -- to make Eggs Benedict sound Italian. (The menu also literally translated "French Toast" which I would bet isn't the Italian name for it -- after all the French call it "Pain Perdu"). Translation oddities aside, we enjoyed the food. Very rich and decadent. We couldn't even think about dessert.
