New Menu Items at Sparrow

I was just at Sparrow this afternoon for brunch (which was fabulous, by the way), and noticed they have some new menu items advertised on the chalkboard above the kitchen area. The menu is definitely fleshing out (no pun intended! you'll see...). Here are the additions:

sweet potato fries ($7)
tater tots ($6)
mac n' cheese ($9 - made with fontina and parmesan - bacon or speck can be added for an additional cost)
blackeye pea and barley salad ($9)
ribeye steak and fries ($26)
baby back ribs ($18)

There are also some new wines on the menu, too. Sadly, the Malbec I loved so much is gone, but a tasty Minervois ($10/$35) is on the menu, and it is terrific (I tasted it at brunch). On their list of whites is an off-dry Riesling from Washington state called Kung Fu Girl ($11/$39), which sounds delicious (and I love the name). There are 6 reds and 6 whites to choose from.

Just a brief note about brunch - it is one of the best brunches I've had in town - simply delicious food and service that was not rushed, but she attended to us in a timely manner. It was amazing that she was able to do so, as the place was very busy and she had a lot on her plate (so to speak).

I had eggs scrambled with potatoes (all eggs are organic, by the way), T had the brunch burger (topped with a fried egg on a lovely brioche bun), and we split some leek sausages which were very good. The sausages were rich and savory without being overly salty. Oh, we started with a warm croissant that came with homemade blueberry jam and some maple syrup. Coffee was great. It's all worth a return visit.

Sounds awesome Meg! Some of those prices are expensive though, especially for a place like Sparrow. $26 for steak?

By the way, Kung Fu Girl IS awesome. Had it at Bar Americain not too long ago, and it was delicious!

$26 is a bit up there. I suspect it is grass fed beef with a price like that. I'm very curious.

Thanks for the info on Kung Fu Girl, Carly! I will have to try it.
