Mushroom Benedict, Hell's Kitchen, Minneapolis

Mushroom Benedict: A grilled Portabello mushroom cap filled with warm, shaved pit ham, topped with a poached egg, and served with wild mushroom hollandaise sauce plus a side of toast. $12.50. You can get it without ham, but why would you?

The good: Points for creativity--the mushroom works well flavor-wise, and the egg was nicely poached. Toppings for toast (homemade jam and peanut butter) were great.

The bad: hollandaise was a bit bland and not bright enough to counter the salty ham (and there really was too much ham. And I like ham). The potatoes were good-not-great. Toast itself was fairly weak (too dependent on the good toppings?).

Verdict: Go here if it's convenient, but don't go out of your way for it.
