Aux Delices Foods by Debra Ponzek Restaurant Review: Chef Debra Ponzek and her husband, Gregory Addonizio, left New York City for Connecticut to open this cozy country-style kitchen and self-serve café, offering French delicacies and more rustic items throughout the day. Breakfast is made special with an eye-opening espresso bar, and a welcoming, sun-filled space in which to partake of fine coffee along with a pâtisserie selection, including fruity tartelettes and eclairs ranging from classic to lemon cream. Lunch brings light and easy choices: soups, sandwiches and main-course salads, from baby arugula with dried cranberries, honey almonds and manchego to a classic Caesar. Dinner offers fixtures on the menu like crab cakes with roasted red pepper sauce and eggplant Parmesan as well as weekly specials, such as beef bourguignonne along with pork scallopini with green peppercorn sauce. If a romantic atmosphere is in order, take Ponzek's food to-go to be enjoyed in the intimacy of your own home.
