When Senart’s Oyster House opened on the Hill, I knew I found a new favorite dinner spot. The oysters were delicious, the meats were juicy, and the soup was excellent. And then the chef mentioned something about brunch…yes, it was time to come back for another visit.
Senart’s serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays starting at 10am, which is perfect for those weekends that are jam packed with, say, an early afternoon bridal shower in Baltimore, which meant I needed to hit the road by noon.
The menu was beyond mouthwatering. There’s an omelet with lobster, brie and shellfish cream, and an omelet with mushrooms, bacon, cheddar and crème fraiche. Or maybe go for the rum scented French Toast…or an open-faced sandwich with shaved prime rib, a sunnyside up egg, melted cheddar, tomato, horseradish aioli and brioche. You can also get crab and prosciutto eggs benedict, a surf and turf breakfast, or the Eastern Shore Morning with pan roasted eggs, fried oysters, gruyere, roasted tomatoes, fresh herbs and crème fraiche. And, of course, a number of their lunch options are also available.
I quickly decided on the mushrooms, bacon, cheddar and crème fraiche omelet, which was delicious. The crunchiness of the bacon was a perfect compliment to the soft texture of the mushrooms and crème fraiche. My friends got the crab and prosciutto eggs benedict and the spiced rum scented French toast — both were definitely worth ordering again. For my next visit, I’m already eying the Eastern Shore Morning with the eggs, fried oysters and gruyere. But really, it’s kind of hard to go wrong with this menu.
This is a great addition to the brunch options on the Hill, so be sure to stop by next time you’re in the neighborhood! And if it’s nice out, get there early so you can get a seat at one of their outside tables. It’s a great spot for people watching while enjoying the nice weather.
