Our regular readers know how partial I am to Eureka’s culinary oasis on “F” Street, the Brick & Fire. I thought I was pretty familiar with their menu but had fallen into the trap of having the Wild Mushroom Cobbler, ($9) every time I went there. I tend to go for salads over fries, therefore I had never had the Brick’s fries ($3.50). They were a revelation.
The fries are steak fries and appear to be grilled rather than deep-fried. I was trying to figure out how to duplicate them at home and concluded you would need a LARGE grill to accommodate those tasty taters side-by-side. They are loaded with chopped garlic and altogether wonderful. I have a new favorite.
My friend had the Caprese BLT ($11) which she liked a lot and I had the panzanella salad ($11) which was seriously delicious, featuring nuggets of organic chicken that couldn’t have been better. If you haven’t already memorized their menu, you can check it out HERE.
We are lucky to have a restaurant of this caliber here. Support your local Brick! No, I do not own stock in them nor am I a friend of the owner.
