early birthday brunch

around here we like to celebrate 
birthdays for an entire week…
because why not? i feel like i’ve
already had my birthday between
celebrating with my family at home
and having a fun birthday brunch
over the weekend…plus, we head
to newport beach this weekend for
more celebrating so it feels like a
few weeks of birthday-ing! because my
birthday is on a weekday today, chase and
i went to a fun brunch over the weekend
since brunch is my favorite … and he says he
has some plans for us tonight! (but won’t tell me.)
 always so thoughtful, that husband of mine. 
anyway, yay for birthdays and yay for brunch. we
loved trying out campton place in union square!

hello, handsome. note the jazz players in the background–
campton place puts on a jazz brunch that is so lovely!
nothing like having a classy brunch with gorgeous
jazz music being played live in the background.
^^ crab cakes benedict for chase…an amazing twist on one
 of our favorite dishes! this restaurant perfects the art of
tweaking dishes just enough to be different, but incredible.
it definitely has its own flair and the dishes are distinctive.
^^ lobster frittata with roasted mushrooms..
you know you’re in san francisco when
lobster and crab is added to every dish!
^^ and, my malted pear waffle with vanilla bean whipped cream.
couldn’t resist! it complimented the other items perfectly.
since this was one of the best restaurants in the city
we had to order some lunch items to go along with
the meal…we did not regret this decision! some of
the best food with the most gorgeous presentation.
^^ this appam was i-n-c-r-e-d-i-b-l-e. i would have never
ordered it on my own, but it was recommended and it
was one of the most uniquely delicious dishes. the
chef sort of creates a fusion between indian and american
food, and this is the perfect balance of flavor and so amazing.
please order it as an appetizer if you dine at campton!
^^ and, more seafood: seared scallops done just right.
^^ we had to finish with a mango dessert. this tart was
a burst of flavor! we recommend the rhubarb dessert too.
thanks to great chef srijith for the deliciousness!
^^ last but not least, i had to show this: they give you a little 
pillow to put your purse on! genius! i loved it too much.

i loved trying this new place for brunch..
perfect way to kick off the birthday!

    I love jazz brunches – there is a place in Boston that does a Sinatra Brunch on the weekends – so good!! How thoughtful of them to give you a pillow for your purse!! Now that’s service!

    I have not eaten waffles for ages so I would love to have them for my dessert topped with strawberries!
