Lola wrestles with a profound question: What comes first, the chicken or the egg?
Both are outstanding at the Great Neck restaurant's Sunday brunch.
New to the menu: crisp, twice-fried "maple chicken" that tastes almost candied with Vermont maple syrup and notes of black truffle. It's a delicious combo of sweetness, savoriness and crunch, atop the house's fluffy biscuits. Michael Ginor's excellent Korean-fried chicken, with a honey-Sriracha accent, remains on the brunch list. But it now has competition. Cost: $15.
Advocating on behalf of the egg: a terrific riff on eggs Benedict, this one with duck prosciutto and smoked duck replacing the usual ham or bacon. An those biscuits top any English muffin. It's also $15. The fine gravlax version is $20.
Enjoy a well-made cappuccino with any dish.
