My wife treated me to brunch today at Lento. We don't often do brunch and haven't been to Lento in a while. Although we were the only ones there (later joined by two couples) and there were signs of deteriorating ambiance (peeling naugahyde seats at the oyster bar), the server was fine and the food great. My wife had a modified wild Alaskan salmon croquette Benedict, which she said was excellent, and they offered good substitutes for the creamed chard and citrus Hollandaise that she shunned. If the day had been cooler, I probably would have had the Israeli shakshuka, but I ordered the frittata (pan-roasted forest mushrooms, squash, Parmesan, and herbs) instead. I've always had trouble making a good frittata, so I'm always looking for a good one to match my first one in Milan many years ago. This was it. It was served with ordinary sourdough toast (crostini, really). I also ate my wife's pan-roasted garlic-herb potatoes, which were a little dray and quite ordinary. All said, though, I'm anxious to back when the weather's cooler for the shakshuka.
