From-the-package Thomas’ English muffins are toasted and topped with thick-cut Canadian bacon and two supple eggs, poached classically in water and white vinegar ($16). But it’s that cloak of hollandaise that elevates the dish to brunch greatness: The velvety emulsion, fortified with clarified butter and tangy from lemon, seeps off the eggs into the accompanying hash, adding a slightly sweet, rich counterpoint to potatoes, scallions and tomatoes. Plate-licking stuff.
