If you are looking for a place to have a leisurely working lunch in the downtown area, give Mosaic at the Hyatt Hotel a try. If you tell them you’re there for a working lunch and they will show to you a larger than usual table, perfect for note-taking and spreading out papers.
They have a French Onion Soup on the menu and it’s a hearty bowlful. Unlike other places where the broth can be overly salty, theirs is just right. The cheese is baked on top, just the way I like it, but one improvement would be even more cheese! One interesting thing to note, they use potato bread for their giant crouton, and the Fontina cheese sits on that. I like the ones where the cheese actually overflows and oozes over the bowl. The cheese was sufficient, but not excessive, which is what I prefer.
I also shared a Club House Sandwich with a co-worker. It’s packed with bacon and turkey. And of course, there is the obligatory tomatoes, cheese and lettuce. We skipped the mayonnaise but requested the garlic fries instead of the tossed salad normally offered.
I’ve also tried their Cobb Salad. The picture doesn’t do it justice, it’s much bigger than it looks. A blend of greens topped with grilled chicken, bacon and egg. Also on the plate are avocado slices, a few crumbles of blue cheese with a lemon-dijon dressing. It’s good if you’re in the mood for healthy…and it’s hearty too, I couldn’t even finish it!
