D Bar Desserts celebrates its first anniversary with free cupcakes!
Put a little sprinkle in your step this Saturday, May 23, when D Bar Desserts, the magnificent bakery, sugar shack and savory foods shop at 1475 East 17th Avenue, celebrates its first anniversary with free cupcakes -- just one of the attention-grabbers at the food-porn patisserie that chef (and Food Network Challenge host) Keegan Gerhard and his wife and pastry chef, Lisa Bailey, opened last year. (Westword restaurant critic Jason Sheehan raved about it here.)
Here's the deal: Come in anytime between 11 a.m. and midnight, order a masturbaked cupcake and get a chocolate- or vanilla-cubed cupcake in return.
And then make plans to return on Sunday, June 28, when Gerhard and Bailey roll out their first brunch menu, which will include a whole roster of savory dishes, including a waffle sandwich. "Think of it as a po' boy, but made instead with a Belgian-style waffle topped with soppresetta, bresaola, capicola, different cheeses and candied jalapenos," Gerhard explains. That, and a cupcake, sounds like a model meal.
