Clio, Boston

I was half expecting hollandaise foam when I sat down for breakfast at Clio, 370 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA, Tel +1 (617) 536-7200. A quick flick through the Clio photo gallery reveals that Ken Oringer is quite the foam fan-boy. A trick he picked up from the godfather of foam, Ferran Adria, no doubt. But my farm eggs were foam-free, and smothered instead with a generous amount of Piment d’Espelette hollandaise. Spicy.



As innovations go, it worked quite well. A little touch of the Basque Country and a little extra kick. All perched on a bed of ham and sweet potato hash. Very nice. And at $17, so it should be.

More frugal options include old fashioned Irish oatmeal with "red & gold" raisins and brown sugar (a mere $8), or French toast with berry compote ($11). They also serve waffles, a couple of omelettes, and fancy-sounding crispy galettes of organic grains and banana with French salted butter and Vermont maple syrup. French salted butter? I thought the French preferred their butter sans salt?

For a power-breakfast venue, service was a little slow and clueless. But at least they won't be in your face while you discuss the finer points of the deal.

Hi,
Food is good don't get me wrong, but selection was small. Tries to be super fancy and chic but its missing something. I would go back if someone invites me... I'm not paying with my own money again.

We lost virtually everything, but it's at those moments in time that you do realize you're safe and your family is safe and that's really all that matters, he said. "You realize how quickly your life could have been taken from you. We were fortunate. (Black Rainbow Michael Kors Purse)

When I got measured for my first suit I didn't know what dressing to the left meant. Until the tailor held the tape measure there and I got a Brokeback Mountain jolt. Aside over. (Michael Kors Pink Black Bag)

If you're a guy, other people (women and men both) are a little less likely to approach you or respond to a greeting or a request for help. I'm not sure that I've ever had a strange guy approach me in public and not thought, "Jesus, what does this dipshit want?" It's just a baseline cultural assumption, because there is an unspoken level of danger there as a guy, you are an asshole until you prove otherwise. It's not entirely unjustified, but it can wear on you at you at times.. (All Black Michael Kors Purse)

It's tough replacing an all league guard, but it's even tougher replacing a team's top two scorers. Brandon Boggs (12.5 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 26 blocked shots) is also gone, so the scoring duties will likely fall on James Sinclair, who averaged 11.8 ppg last season with 4.7 rpg. Returning role players for the Catamounts include Justin Browning, Rhett Harrelson and Mike Brown, but the Cats may also be relying a bit on a freshman recruiting class that includes four players.
