Prep & Pastry Restaurant Review: This charming eatery is a bit deceptive. The menu reads like that of an old-fashioned diner, but the food is worlds beyond your typical hash house fare. Indeed, hash is prepared three ways: corned beef, sweet potato or duck confit. Alternatively, you can have the brioche french toast stuffed with either a fresh berry compote or bananas Foster. And don’t even get us started on the house version of eggs Benedict mounted on cheddar biscuits. For lunch, we suggest “the dip," a hearty sandwich that's packed with tender tri-tip beef, fresh local tomatoes, melted Gruyère, kale that's slightly wilted from the heat, and enough true au jus to get you through the whole sandwich. As for pastries, scones pop up in such flavors as crème brûlée with sweet caramel tones. We recommend ordering extra cookies to take home; they’re that good. Dossants (aka Cronuts) practically fly off the shelves. Expect a wait for weekend brunch.
