5/25/09 - Breakfast at Amelia's Bistro (jersey city)

We spent most of our holiday weekend getting the place spruced up a bit for our party in a few weeks. Not exactly the most fun way to spend a long weekend but always rewarding in the end. Saturday was trip #1 to Ikea (red rug, pictures frames, scoped out a bed frame & entertainment center) and home depot for paint, Sunday was Ikea trip #2 (return red rug, buy green rug, bed frame and part of entertainment center) and then off to a friends BBQ for massive qauntities of meat and beer (sorry no pics!) so monday was assembly time.... Ikea style! Of course food (and a bloody mary were needed before we even opened the boxes)
When I lived near the waterfront in Paulus Hook area of Jersey City - Amelia's Bistro was pretty much a staple as they would delivery breakfast to very sleepy people on the 3rd floor..... with good coffee! Now that we live together calls for take out are less frequent ...... but since we had so much work to do we decided to treat ourselves.
I had the Wild mushroom, Gruyere and carmelized onion omelet and he had eggs benedict - however the table next to us got the lobster hash and mmmm did it look good!
The table on the other side complained that their food wasn't hot and then when the manager offered to comp them they wouldn't accept! I guess they just wanted it noted? If something is wrong with my meal and I am usually happy to accept a discount.
As always the mini-muffins and jam were delicious as was the breakfast though the bread on the side always confuses me.... just doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the meal.
