Sage General Store in Long Island City for a while now, but never had the chance to go there for food. A few weeks back I saw that they were doing a Bacon Brunch: three courses designed for bacon overload. I had to do it. Yesterday, I got my chance.
Nueske’s applewood smoked, Indiana's Dewigs slab, and Texas's “Ham I Am” pepper bacon, a bacon cheddar scone, and some Bacon Marmalade. All were delicious, though I preferred the applewood smoked and Dewigs slab as I found the pepper coating to be a bit overpowering. What I really loved from this was the perfectly done scone especially when it was dipped in the Marmalade. It gave it just the right amount of moistness and sweet with the savory bacon taste. It's a delicious heart attack disguised as breakfast. Who am I kidding, this whole meal is a delicious heart attack disguised as brunch.
the mashed potato pizza in New Haven. The crust was doughy enough, while thin and crispy, but lacked in the bottom char I've come to love. Everything together was salty goodness and exactly what my hangover needed. As far as the grilled cheese-jack, Vermont cheddar, and gruyere with the pepper bacon-it's a cheesy delightfully overflowing sandwich. I definitely need to get one soon.
