No omelets on the menu

POULSBO Its set for a grand opening next month, but theres one community niche Taprock Northwest Grill wont be filling as a replacement for Mitzels American Kitchen, which was destroyed in a May 2006 fire.
That niche? Breakfast, with a side order of conversation.
Despite its vacation lodge appeal and mouthwatering menu, many community members are already expressing disappointment Taprock isnt catering to those up for eggs and issues.
Taprock marketing manager Jill King said after the loss of Mitzels, Elmers Restaurants Inc., which owns both the Mitzels chain and Taprock, decided it was an opportunity to try something new for the Poulsbo community.
This is a completely different concept, she said, adding the chance to create a new kind of amenity for Poulsbo was the silver lining in the cloud of Mitzels destruction.
But while theyre planning for only lunch and dinner now, the restaurant will still remain open-minded to the wants of its patrons.
We have said that in order to do the best job possible for our guests we want to perfect lunch and dinner before we serve breakfast, she said.
But should people express a desire for that Taprock morning meal, their opinions will be heard, she said.
Well definitely take it to heart, she said.
So while breakfast isnt on the table now, it hasnt been canned completely. It may just be up to the community to save it.
