Basket of freshly baked breads, croissants + pastries
with house made confiture (serves two) ($13)
Disclosure: This was a **COMP** from Chef Thuet. Thank you ever so kindly - this bread lover completely appreciated this gesture (and such a generous portion of carbs to pair with the 2 full appetizers and 2 mains our table ordered).
In the basket:
butter croissant (crisp, flaky outer layers, buttery soft interior layers; perfect with no large air pockets)
pain au chocolat - left for my dining companion
Raisin croissant (slight cinnamon sugar layer and juicy sweet raisins between the larger flaky spirals; very enjoyable and not too sweet)
Cherry danish - excellent - a flaky pastry boat holds a half dozen pump preserved Bing cherries and kissed by an apricot glaze. This one was hard to resist
Multigrain (7? 12 seed? LOL, DW how many did you throw into this one?)
Whole wheat country
It came with butter and homemade apricot/peach (and something else) spread.
