Just took a look at the menu. Two things stood out:

 

1. They changed the name of Schmutzy Fries to Reuben Fries for the Virginia rubes.

2. They spelled Smorgasbords as Smorgasboards.

 

I always thought schmutzy fries sounded gross.

I never liked the name either, but I found the change amusing.

I suspect it's a Koslow artifact.

I took my very picky 5.5-year old daughter here for brunch yesterday after wandering around the farmer's market. I managed to sell her on trying French toast for the first time by emphasizing that it's made with challah, which she loves. I took a few tastes and, I got to say, that's the best damn French toast I've ever had. It wasn't too eggy, and had a wonderful crispiness to it. I had the bagel and lox platter. My only minor complaint there was the way they piled up the fixings on the side. The capers were rolling around on top of the tomatoes and underneath the lettuce making it difficult to corral them onto a spoon and put them on the bagel.

 

Service was excellent. Our waiter was attuned to the particular needs of a young one and patient with her "bubbly water, no cranberry juice, no bubbly water AND cranberry juice, no not mixed together" indecisiveness.

 

The only downside was watching the TV over the bar and seeing Federer lose. I suppose that's not DGS's fault.   :)
