Brunch at Tavern: Pricey but Good in a Lovely Space

We had brunch this morning in Brentwood at Tavern in the back room. The space is really lovely, a soaring glass atrium with some white drapery, comfortable yet elegant plush couches and chairs with nailhead trimmed steel tables. It's a really gorgeous room particularly on a beautifully sunshine-y days like today. We had the Tavern eggs benedict and brisket hash. I really loved the eggs benedict; the prosciutto gave the dish great savory flavor but with a lighter touch than the usual Canadian bacon. It was one of the most well-balanced eggs benedicts that I've ever had, between the perfectly cooked poached egg, hollandaise, airy prosciutto, with parsley and meyer lemon for a touch of freshness. The hash was good though just a little on the oily side and the brisket was a touch dry.  My general complaint about one of Suzanne Goin's other restaurants, AOC, is that it also is just a little too oily, though the food is quite tasty.  We also had a sticky bun from the larder which was delicious, warm, fluffy, moist and just on the right side of very sweet without being too sweet and delicious candied pecans. Prices are high, between $15-$20 for each brunch entree. Still, it's a lovely place for brunch, particularly with company. Unfortunately I forgot my camera so I just have the iPhone shot of the sticky bun.
