Eat It Up


Don’t be fooled by the name; both your sweet and savory tooth can be satisfied at Extraordinary Desserts. Karen Krasne’s two locations still serve house-made cakes, pies, tarts, pastries, ice cream and confections; plus coffee, wine and beer. But the Little Italy locale also offers a savory menu that includes bruschetta, paninis, salads and small plates. We love the charcuterie platter and the imported Italian tuna panini. The Little Italy outpost also offers fun specials such as an $8 grilled cheese night from 5 to 11 p.m. on Tuesdays; plus a buffetstyle European breakfast from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sundays, featuring granola, smoked salmon, roasted turkey breast, fruit, pastries and gourmet cheeses. 1430 Union St., Little Italy, 619.294.7001; 2929 Fifth Ave., Hillcrest, 619.294.2132
