And if you don't see one of your old favorites, be sure to ask. It may just be masquerading under a different name. For example, the popular Undecided - a salad plate featuring scoops of egg, chicken and tuna salad - is now called the Blossom Trio.
There's also this frighteningly intriguing new creation called "The C-A-B-G." You can't make this stuff up, so in the menu's own words ...
"Only a select few truly know what it stands for, so please keep it to yourself. All you need to know is that after only one bite your heart will literally skip a beat. We begin with a classic Blossom grilled cheese on Texas toast, any style you like. Next, we top it with four Buzz Buttered Steaks, Applewood bacon, a fried egg, lettuce, tomato, mustard and mayo before we finish construction with another Blossom grilled cheese on top."
As if four burgers stacked between two grilled cheeses weren't enough, you can also "double" or "triple" it for a few bucks more.
Is this some kind of joke? The C-A-B-G must stand for Calling All Big Guys. Or Croak At (Once) By God.
The new Blossom is open only for lunch so far, but crowds have been strong - a mixture of old faces and new, just like the menu. Although there are no immediate plans to open for dinner, the new owners are in the process of adding beer to their offerings (with a focus on state brews) and may eventually extend hours to attract an after-work crowd.
There's no doubt most people will want to make the inevitable comparison: Is the new Blossom as good as the old one?
Let's just say it's different. Not better, not worse, just a nostalgically neat place where you can once again get a pretty good lunch - and maybe take a walk down memory lane.
It's great to have it back.
