Geraldine's Counter Restaurant Review

: Going upscale doesn't mean changing the recipes much at Geraldine's Counter, where counter seating is really the best spot in the house. Sidle up to the bar for a peek into the kitchen, or grab a table for a larger party. For brunch, try the sweet white corn, Havarti cheese and herb scramble. A breakfast BLT combines arugula with thick-cut bacon. Sandwiches are served with regular fries, but order the sweet potato fries for something even better. Salads include Cobb, spinach, curried chicken and chop chop, and all are generously portioned. At dinner, a hearty chili, creamy mac ā€˜nā€™ cheese, and other old-school comfort food favorites such as chicken potpie or plump burgers are especially satisfying. Desserts range from Mexican chocolate mousse pie to fruit crisp and banana splits. Service is prompt.
