Full Disclosure: I attended a complimentary tasting at Foreign & Domestic. All opinions are my own.
Sarah Heard, Owner/Co-Chef and Nathan Lemley, Owner/Co-Chef are working their magic in the kitchen at Foreign & Domestic. Sticking true to the farm-to-table restaurant roots, they are utilizing responsibly sourced and humanely sourced ingredients. The updated menu is creative, bold with exciting flavors at an approachable price point. I recently dined at Foreign & Domestic for the first time last week and was equally charmed by the atmosphere and delighted by the cuisine. The restaurant is in an intimate space with an open kitchen. Watching the synergy of Chef Heard and Chef Lemley in the kitchen added to the exceptional dining experience.
Here is a look at the plates we tried during brunch service:
|Duck Egg & Grains|
duck egg & grains, soft egg, beech mushroom, sunchoke chips, dill
I was excited to see an ancient grains dish on the brunch and dinner menu. The duck egg & grains has quinoa, sunchoke chips, dill and is beautifully balanced with the sherry marinated beech mushrooms and the rich egg yoke. I would happily indulge in this lighter dish everyday.
|Eggs Any Style at Foreign & Domestic|
eggs any style (2), fried potatoes, house bacon, brioche, blistered tomato
This is not your basic greasy diner eggs and toast type of breakfast. This elevated take on a classic dish showcases the creativity of the chef duo team. The fluffy perfectly cooked eggs are served with fried potatoes, thick house bacon, golden brioche toast and blistered tomatoes.
pancakes & peach jam, peach jam & whipped cream
The dense rich pancakes topped with sweet peach jam and light cream instantly brought a smile to our faces! They are perfect for sharing if you would like to try multiple dishes but they are so delicious you may be fork-to-fork after the last bite.
The Painted Lady Mimosa (also pictured above)
A refreshing take on a mimosa with cava, pomegranate and OJ.
juniper pots de creme, buttermilk froth, cocoa nib, fennel merengue
We were delighted by the whimsical juniper pots de creme. This artistic dessert has cocoa nibs playfully float atop a foamy layer of buttermilk froth pierced by fennel merengue.
If you have yet to dine Foreign & Domestic or have not been in a while, I encourage you to treat yourself to the phenomenal one-of-a-kind culinary experience that Foreign & Domestic eloquently delivers and get a taste of the new menu.
