Michael's vs. Tudor House: Battle Of The Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes
|Tudor's lemon-ricotta pancakes.|
In the opposing corner: A different interpretation of the same pancakes from chefs Geoffrey Zakarian and Jamie DeRosa at the recently opened Tudor House Restaurant at the Dream Hotel in South Beach.
It's a battle of batters, a test of zest, a crunch at brunch -- and a prelude to our upcoming Flapjack Flip-Off XI.
Ready. Set. Pour!
Tudor House Restaurant: Five tender, ricotta-moistened pancakes were lusciously light and flavorful. The small, round jacks were barely flecked with lemon, but they come draped in heavenly lemon curd sauce (cherry preserves are also offered -- solo or in tandem with the curd). Service was excellent. Price for five small cakes: $14.

Winner: Michael's lemony flapjacks were delectable, but the lemon-ricotta hotcakes at Tudor House were nearly perfect. So Tudor prevails -- although we were very impressed with brunch at both spots.
