Fat Hen Grocery is SweetThe restaurant is located on St. Charles Avenue and really charms you from the very beginning. It has beautiful frosted windows, an adorable hen with over-sized Mardi Gras beads strewn around her and a mix of cute potted plants that line the window sills & front of the restaurant.
I was impressed with their freshly squeezed orange juice. You literally saw a lady squeezing bright beautiful oranges behind the counter. Sure, many restaurants offer freshly squeezed juice. However, do they offer it in a cute mason jar with umbrella? For me, not only should the food be good but also presented accordingly. I thought the umbrella and mason jar was a very nice touch. I also decided to try their parfait, which is a greek style organic yogurt, layered with granola, strawberries and blueberries (seasonal fruit). The parfait could be a meal in itself. It's that rich and filling. I only ate a portion of mine, because I had to leave room for what was next.
My Final Thoughts: I had a really nice experience at The Fat Hen Grocery. I would definitely visit it again. I would like to give a huge shout-out to our waiter Walter. He was attentive, timed all of our dishes perfectly, made wonderful suggestions and really made us feel at home.
I can only think of two negatives for The Fat Hen Grill. One, is that it is pricey. It's nice, but to pay $45 + gratuity for just two people may definitely be too much for some just for breakfast. Two, we purchased two of their homemade chocolate chip cookies. Well, The Fat Hen Grill is a BBQ place and that BBQ scent worked it's way into the cookies. They definitely had a distinct smoke taste! HaHaHa So I would ask management to keep the cookies separate from the BBQ. Other than those two things, it was great! I plan on reviewing it again for it's BBQ and sides.
