This is a WTF Waffle — which is probably short for either "what the foie?" or "what the fuck, this waffle they just set in front of me is insane" — and you can eat it during a special day-after-Valentine's brunch at Palladino's. The newly opened East Passyunk steakhouse doesn't normally serve brunch (that service should debut for good in the spring) but they're planning a special preview for the holiday — because, believe it or not, there are people in this world who sincerely enjoy both brunch and dining out for Valentine's Day.
The WTF waffle costs $19 and comes layered with grilled ham, an over-easy egg, braised beef cheeks, seared foie gras, and maple-mustard glaze.If you prefer your waffles uneffed-with, you can get one topped simply with maple syrup and berries for $10.
While Valentine's Day is on Saturday, February 14, Palladino's Valentine's brunch is more of a V-Day hangover deal: It's scheduled for Sunday, February 15, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (There are also a number of Valentine's week menu additions at dinner, from February 10 through 14 — you can see those specials here.)
