Morning Eats: Elway's Downtown
By January 29, 2010 10:58 AM
When I think Elway's
, I typically think power lunch or steak dinner, but rarely do I think breakfast. Which is a shame, because the downtown
location (in the Ritz-Carlton) is the ideal spot for a morning meeting.
You'll likely have the dining room to yourself (perfect for top-secret conversations), and chef Robert Bogart's menu is extensive, appealing to everyone from oatmeal lovers---whole-milk, steel-cut oats, vanilla-apple rolled oats, and rolled oats brÃ»lÃ©e---to the egg-and-toast crowd.
There are omelets (check out the 5280, with aged cheddar, bacon, spinach, and mushrooms), a truffled eggs Benedict, and huevos rancheros.
But, it's the asparagus and mushroom frittata that gets top billing. The dish channels spring with bright asparagus, and it's a graceful take on the average hunk-a-egg. Served with a side of well-seasoned rosemary breakfast potatoes and addictive fire-roasted tomatoes, it's a breakfast of champions.
