The wait is worth it most any time of day – especially weekend brunch – when it snakes around the corner. But fear not. The line moves fast and once you plunk your fork into a bowl full of Sorrel Pesto Rice, you’re hooked. Line and sinker. It’s life-changing good. As in "you will dream about this later" good. The egg oozes out over the rice in perfect harmony and the lemon zests to your tasetbuds for a flavor you want to sop up asap. Meanwhile, the creamy feta acts as conductor, connecting this beautiful symphony of a dish all together while the pesto acts as a sort of soloist, upping the ante with music your mouth has never tasted before. I exaggerate not. You will tell your friends about this dish long after you’ve left. The only warning? Contemplate your order before you step to the front of the counter since Sqirl is a tiny place – basically the size of a small bakery, which is what it feels like (baked goods on display in front). You order at the register, then grab a seat on the sidewalk or at the patio on the side. What's the outside temperature where you're reading this today?
