Restaurant: First Watch & Giveaway!

First Watch is back at it again - new menu items and a great giveaway for the Food Hussy fans! 


They have three new menu items - first up - I'll share the one we didn't try. The Superfood Kale Salad - wow - that just sounds REALLY healthy! The Superfood Kale Salad has baby kale and mixed greens topped with housemade maple-roasted carrots, warm grilled chicken breast, dried cranberries, slivered almonds and shredded Parmesan cheese tossed in their refreshing maple-lemon vinaigrette. ($8.99) Sounds good and oh so healthy. 

My friend Lauren and I flipped a coin for the other two new dishes - she won and picked first - she chose the Resolution Hash. This was two eggs (any style - she chose over-easy) on a hash of freshly seasoned potatoes, turkey sausage, house-roasted crimini mushrooms, onions and tomatoes topped with hollandaise sauce and herbed goat cheese. It's served with fresh greens in a lemon vinaigrette for $9.29.

Lauren is becoming quite the critic since she accompanies me quite often - she said that she really enjoyed this. She said there's a lot going on but it all goes together nicely.

If you'd like to make some hash of your own - check out my friend Clark's Hashcapades cookbook!

By default I had the Frittata Rustica which is a classic Italian-style omelet with kale, house-roasted crimini mushrooms, onions and tomatoes topped with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Served with fresh greens in a lemon vinaigrette and a ciabatta crisp for $8.99. 

I really liked this one - the omelet had a lot going on. I definitely got my roughage for the day! That said - I actually liked the kale. The tomatoes were full of flavor and added a welcome juiciness to the omelet that would have been highly lacking without them. I'm a sucker for toast with my eggs so the ciabatta was great. I am not a big fan of their lemon vinaigrette and wish they had other options - but it was fine. 

Why Should You Go? Well our service was better this time - which isn't surprising since they knew I was a blogger. That said - the food was all great and we both really enjoyed their new dishes. They're unique and full of superfoods - wooohoo for superfoods!  

Now you can enter to win breakfast/brunch/lunch for 2 at First Watch! I have TWO gift cards to giveaway. Thanks to First Watch for the gift cards!
