Superba Food + Bread Restaurant Review

: Paul Hibler’s American Gonzo Food Corporation (Pitfire Artisan Pizza, Superba Snack Bar, East Borough) continues its expansion with Superba Food + Bread, a spin-off of nearby Superba Snack Bar. The casual eatery occupies a corner location in Venice that used to be an auto body shop, and this history is reflected in the hip, industrial design with its rolling garage door, wood truss ceiling and concrete floors. After passing by the patio, you’ll enter the warm, inviting space encompassing a coffee station for ordering espresso drinks, a bakery counter and tables where diners can see into the massive, glassed-in kitchen. Head baker Jonathan Eng’s artisan breads, including a classic baguette and chia seed sourdough, are a focus of Superba Food + Bread. Meanwhile, executive chef Jason Travi (littlefork, formerly of Fraîche) oversees the simple but satisfying breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch menus, with options like frisée salad with a slow-cooked egg and bacon confit as well as pain au levain toast topped with avocado, pickled Fresno peppers, radish sprouts and sea salt. Dinnertime brings fresh Arctic char with snap peas, rhubarb and mint, along with rotating “nightly supper” specials like Tuesday’s rotisserie duck rubbed with spices and served with dill and duck fat vegetables. Pastry chef Lincoln Carson worked under François Payard at Le Bernardin before going on to oversee the pastry programs for Daniel Boulud and Michael Mina, so it’s no wonder that the desserts here are excellent across the board, from the “Superba Candy Bar” with chocolate, Marcona almonds and sea salt to the Pavlova with farm strawberries, basil meringue and whipped cream. There are a few craft beers on draft as well as a brief wine list that highlights French selections.
