Superba Food & Bread on Lincoln Blvd. has been opened since April and I finally made a trip over to taste their food. The space is quite large and open with sliding glass door to give it an indoor-outdoor feel. There is a large pastry counter where you can view and purchase vast amounts of breakfast pastries, breads and desserts. The viewing kitchen to one side of the restaurant offers a eye full of prep from meats to breads.
What makes this place so fantastic is the offering of three meals a day with a change of menu at each. The wine and beer list is adequate for summer dining with a nice French Rose’ on a hot day.
As for lunch, it starts with Toasts to Taste + Share which are homemade toppings on top of their fabulous breads. The Soup and Salads offer a handful of options with my favorite – Frisee aux Lardon Salad, consisting of bacon confit, which is a small slab of pork belly on the side of frisee lettuce, soft poached egg all tossed in a very grainy mustard.
Sandwiches are a big part of Superba Food & Bread and the Bahn Mi is always a nice hit. I was in the mood for meatballs, so they accommodated my request and served them up crock-style instead of on a hero. The sauce and peppers were spicy sweet it all tasted lovely.
As for pastries the Kouign Amann or butter cake as it is named after was buttery and crunchy, made to perfection. *Sorry no picture, my friend and I devoured it.
Superba Food & Bread makes delicious food in a lovely open environment. The breads and pastries are an event in itself . I am really looking forward to trying the chefs Brisket on Saturdays.
