In this week's batch of brunch news, sweet and sinful pastries circulate at Little Market Brasserie restaurantwhile gourmet pigs in blankets add state fair-style comfort to the brunch menu at Sable Kitchen & Bar.restaurant
The best things in life are sinful. Sorry, Bible. And it doesn't get any more sinful than pastries, really. Sorry, Homer Simpson. Because Little Market Brasserie knows the way to diners' hearts is lined with dough, the restaurant recently unveiled a new weekly brunch special, wherein pastry chef Grace Donaghy creates different sweet, sinful pastries each week. As if the brunch menu was not indulgent enough as is, Donaghy features her "Grace's Sweet Sin" every Saturday and Sunday, rotating dishes per her whim. The perfect treat to share or hoard for yourself, guests can expect such pastries as yeast doughnuts with coffee creme anglaise and blueberry-vanilla preserves, skillet cinnamon rolls with vanilla bean icing, and banana nutmeg bread pudding with banana-infused caramel and Chantilly cream. Go forth and sin.
No less sinful is the equally indulgent pastry-sheathed sausage being served for brunch at Sable Kitchen & Bar. Just in time for state fair season, wherein people flock to the countryside to line their arteries with deep-fried foods on sticks, Sable's pigs in a blanket are a nod to the beloved corndog. Housemade sausage links are bathed in pancake batter, speared on sticks, and fried. You're welcome.
