I’ve been to Chez Zee for Brunch and Lunch but never for Dinner. And yes, I’ve also many of their desserts. My experience has always been consistently good. The food of course is great as is the service. The only criticism I would make is that the place is a bit noisy and crowded. The tables aren’t very close to each other, but it could do with a few fewer table. But then the wait would probably be longer.

Luckily I’ve never had to wait too long.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 4 slices of bread, torn into 1-inch pieces (about 4 cups)

Directions

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Turn off the heat, add the honey, and stir to combine.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine the eggs, ricotta, and sugar. Using a fork, mix to combine and beat the eggs. Add the milk, orange juice, butter and honey mixture, and bread. Stir to combine. Gently fold in the berries.

Place the ingredients in a 10-inch round (2-quart) baking dish. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours and up to 12 hours.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Bake the strata until golden on top and baked through, about 40 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Spoon into dishes and serve.
