A friend took note of Browning's new breakfast hours and ambled over Saturday morning. His report:
Breakfasted at the 'new' Brownings this morning--along with all the other lemmings in the Heights. You'd have thought it was the Grill of 'The Club' on a busy night. Packed. They were unprepared for the crowd. Unorganized chaos. Food was okay. Heaping platefuls, omelets covered in orange cheese (not mentioned on menu--but in keeping with Brownings' traditional orange & brown food). No designer coffees, just the poured from an urn type.
More Ozark than Satellite.
Speaking of that, driving past Satellite Grill on way home, I noticed the window tables were occupied but nobody bunched up inside the doorway waiting for tables as is the norm for Saturdays. I imagine they and Blvd both noticed the difference today.
