Taste this: Deviled Eggs at The Esquire Tavern



After a late Saturday night celebrating “Exotic Easter” with 500 other like-minded misfits, I woke up craving eggs. And since none had been hidden in my backyard during the wee hours, I decided to nurse my hangover at the dark and handsome Esquire Tavern. The deviled eggs ($5) are stuffed with a decadent filling (hard-boiled egg yolks, house-made aioli, whipped cream, a dash of Tabasco, and ground pink peppercorns), and nestled on a bed of arugula micro-greens. But what zaps them into the whimsical realm of Dr. Seuss are pickled pink peppercorns placed atop each satisfying mouthful. You could bite one in half, but why?
