While your portion is big enough to fill an army of hobbits, make sure to leave room for dessert. Four words: white chocolate bread pudding.Bilbo Baggins Restaurant & Pub may be named after the "The Hobbit," but don’t come in thinking you have to be the ultimate fanboy or girl to enjoy yourself. In fact, besides a few murals on the wall, this place’s theme leans more funky than fantasy. With four different dining rooms to choose from (my favorite is the pub-like environment—complete with a full bar and some pretty sweet dranks, like the Miruvor Martini, which tastes like apple pie—on the first floor) and a menu that offers everything from gourmet pizza and smoked duck salads to a brunch favorite, homemade French toast made with fresh bread, which of course, is also made in-house, Bilbo Baggins is eclectic to its core. “We’re chef-owned and operated,” said Linda, the wife of chef/owner Mike Armellino. And it shows because everything is made from scratch. “Down to the mayonnaise,” said Linda. And while your portion is big enough to fill an army of hobbits, make sure to leave room for dessert.
