Don't bother with a brunch menu at Il Fornaio The Local Dish, posted by Prima Collazione, a resident of the Menlo Park: Downtown neighborhood, on Dec 13, 2006 at 4:39 pm
For my money, the only thing worth getting at brunch at Il Fornaio is the French toast. The lump of melting marscapone cheese atop those lovely, airy slices of bread, doused with real maple syrup, is divine.
Everything else I've tried on the Sunday brunch menu has been disappointing.
But I don't like schlepping into Palo Alto if I don't have to. Is there anywhere else that has great French toast?
