Over Easy

This small (mostly AZ) chain just opened up in Flagstaff, owned by the same Plated Projects that owns Taverna and started the original Field House in this location.

There's a certain degree of overlap between Over Easy and Field House. You can find chicken & waffles on the menu, and the Wolf Pack is similar to the old Lumberjack. Having said that, so far I don't think it's all that great. My first impression was "overpriced Waffle House" but on reconsideration it's better than that. At least, it's good enough to keep me coming, all things considered. It's not a homestyle diner ambience, and is pretty noisy, but it has an inviting menu. It's in a convenient location, and it's open early.

The best item I've tried so far is the chilaquiles -- the ranchero sauce is outstanding -- I'm tempted to bump up their score another point. Other favorites include the eggs & wild mushrooms and the loko moko. The corned beef hash is good (no MSG), but still doesn't hold a candle to the old Kathy's, which is now a Korean Restaurant. The hash browns are not as good as the original Field House, but the home fries are decent.

The omelettes are done Mice & Rats style: the ingredients are mixed in with the eggs. Not a proper omelette at all. Even Field House did them better. I'll definitely never order another omelette here.

The original Field House was no Crown Railroad, but it was good enough to keep me coming back regularly. But then new owners took it over, and it went downhill. It wasn't downright terrible, and it lasted longer than I thought, but I only went a few times.

Before Field House, this location used to be Pizza Furiosa, which in turn was Pesto Brothers when it was downtown. Pesto Brothers was good, solid, and popular, and I never understood why they completely gave up their old menu and turned into a wannabee trendy pizza place. I guess thatís just another example of how a good restaurant can make a wrong turn and subsequently fly off the face of the planet.
