A small plastic cup of fresh fruit had indeed been placed on the side of the plate, though its contents were simply two sad chunks of honeydew and watermelon (likely from the same fruit which my appetizer had been derived from).
To this moment, I still can't believe that Eggs Benedict were more affordable than a tiny salad. Perhaps I'm just bitter, but it is, in fact, the truth.
The roughly-sliced, 2 inch by 2 inch square piece of caramel-covered creaminess was equal parts crunchy pecan base and impossibly smooth chocolate cake. I do feel the need to complain that the dessert had been plated onto a warm, narrow dish, causing the vanilla ice cream to exhibit signs of liquification before even hitting the table; a whole strawberry had been added as the finishing touch, though its over-ripe properties lent a less-than-stellar vibe to the final product. While I don't believe the Chocolate Torte warrants its eight-dollar charge, it was still a splendid dessert to fill the void in my stomach post-poor decision-making.
Nonetheless, I quite enjoyed the experience and was even able to pick up several deals!
