8:00 AM – Zaftig’s Delicatessen

Lisa was the most hospitable person I met on these shoots. It could be her natural maternal character kicking in, but I think that she just knows how to treat a man. Whoever the ‘Clark’ in ‘Hicks-Clark’ is should be a damn grateful husband. We have the benedict on lox on potato pancake. Wilkens raves, I finish one whole potato pancake, Brett barely gets a bite, but is adventurous and tastes lox for the first time. This dish is a hit with at least one Quinnipiac student. The hollandaise – creamy and not too lemony. The lox – fresh. The potato pancake – light and crispy on the outside with doughy goodness on the inside. Wilkens’ favorite for the shift. Brett is branching out and exploring fine dining for the first time – he tells me that his mom makes pretty good sandwiches and Chicken Pot Pie, and after that, it drops off like the Marianas Trench. From Zaftig’s, it’s only a hop, skip, and a jump to the 9:00 AM stop of 24 in 24: Boston . . .
