Nectar Brunch - Mt. Lookout

We have not been to Nectar for dinner, but finally got around to trying their brunch this past weekend.  Nectar is priced about the same as Teller's ($9-12 a plate), so it will run you about $30 for two, but we feel it is money well spent. 

Nectar serves as many local and seasonal items as possible, and we like that.  Chalk had the same idea, and we loved Chalk too : ( .   Often you can appreciate the local difference with ingredients like eggs and produce, so we were drawn to those menu items.  We ordered
the Chorizo Scramble (Fishback Farms pastured eggs with spanish chorizo, caramelized red onion,manchego cheese, tomatillo chipotle salsa, crispy red chile potatoes) and the Seasonal Vegetable Frittata (caramelized shallots, braised local greens, organic mushrooms, grana parmesan,sundried tomato pesto - picture below).  Both dishes were served with breakfast potatoes (amazing!), as well as a seasonal fruit medley.  The huge portions, fresh ingredients and exciting flavor combinations made our meal worth every penny. 

Our only complaint is that the eggs in the Chorizo Scramble were a little cold.  It must have been waiting in the window a few minutes for the other dishes.
