It’s been two months since Gannon’s (formerly Seawatch Restaurant) finished their renovations (both to the menu and the restaurant) and re-opened under Beverly Gannon’s ownership, so we feel comfortable that they’ve had time to work the kinks out.
We checked them out for breakfast the other day, and OH, MAN…are we glad that we did!?!
James had the eggs benedict – which was good at the old Seawatch – and this one was a model version. The hollandaise was creamy and – as you can see from the picture – of a perfect consistency. The eggs were beautifully cooked: tender, with not a hint of rubber to the texture. The cayenne pepper on top kicked up the heat without breaking a sweat … while the potatoes were soft and melty inside a crispy shell, fragrant with rosemary and seasoned so well that we did not have to pick up a salt or pepper shaker.
Yay! Service was very good – although it took a while to get the hostess’ attention in the cavernous space. Is it our imagination, or did the elegant renovation make the restaurant seem twice as large as it did just a few months ago? The new Red Bar with its central bar and blood-red ceilings made us feel like having a martini … which means we’ll have to try dinner next. Have you been to the new Gannon’s?
