Haven't eaten at Bridget Foy's in quite some time. Last time we were there was well before my blogging days for brunch after shopping the headhouse market on a Sunday morning. I do remember brunch being very good, and the bloody mary's spicy. This time was just for a quick meal and a drink while running errands.
Server was friendly - "My mom call's me Michael, but you can call me Shazam" and everything came out quickly. The menu is stocked with burgers, bar snacks & appetizers but with a decidedly Asian influence. Crab & scallop dumplings, pork belly spring rolls and Korean BBQ duck tacos litter the appetizer menu. I ordered a remarkably good bahn mi from the sandwich list. Filled with sesame braised pork, pickled veggies, bean sprouts and some slap you in the face spicy siracha mayo. The hoagie roll was soft and chewy, perfectly fresh. The fries were hand cut, with skins left on and nicely seasoned. She got the hummus plate that seemed to be house made, garnished with olives, tomato & cucumber and nicely toasted pita for dipping.
Small but decent selection of wines by the glass on hand. The same goes for the draught beer list. I had a very good Donnybrook stout from Victory that helped cool the burn from that siracha mayo. Now that the weather is warming up (finally), definitely looking forward to some good South Street people watching from the little patio outside and of course checking out the rest of the menu.
