Cathy suggested Humboldt for our lunch meeting. It's located on a quiet side street in a residential neighborhood east of downtown. We arrived early enough to be able to sit outside and enjoy the wonderful weather.
For our main courses, Cathy ordered a fish sandwich served on an English muffin, which she said was wonderful. I chose roasted chicken, which was flawlessly executed. The meat was very juicy and the skin was very crispy, giving a great texture contrast. The skin also had a nice dose of salt, which was an unexpected and pleasant accent.
For dessert, Cathy ordered creme brulee and I ordered the chocolate cake. The cake was very good but I think Cathy's made the winning choice. The brulee was both creamy and eggy with a wonderful flamed crust on top.
