My 40th birthday was this week and this morning, my pals took me out to brunch at School to celebrate. Word was, the super cheesy french toast was a menu highlight, so I went with that. It came with double smoked bacon and salad greens, and was indeed, super cheesy.
I did have to do some deconstruction, as I'm not a fan of maple syrup on my bacon. But once I removed the bacon, I was surprised at how well the rich and savoury cheese toast went with the syrup. I can see why it's popular. The bacon was nice, though uninspired.
I think it's fair to note that I've heard very mixed reviews about School, and today was no exception. One friend's eggs benedict were cold; another's steak, requested to be the rare side of medium rare, came pretty much well done; a third made the kind of face reserved for the smell of durian when she tried the maple cranberry sausage. So, although I did enjoy my dish, I don't think I'm in any rush to return.
