#20: Blue Crabmeat Eggs Benedict @ Mattina Bella

DishStars-4
Mattina Bella is the best breakfast cafe on the North Shore, which is saying something–what with the large number of breakfast places in Mandeville and Covignton. There’s nothing especially offbeat about the menu, but they put out the classics with such attention to detail that you’d have to go to a fancy hotel or Brennan’s on Royal Street to equal it. This dish is exactly what it implies: English muffins topped with crabmeat or crawfish with mushrooms, topped with poached eggs and a near-perfect, flowing hollandaise. The explanation lies in the hands of Vincent Riccobono, the owner, whose family supplies most of the staff.
