A Restaurant That’s Just Desserts Could Be in the Old Port Soon
If this dessert looks Gross to you, it should. That's the point. According to the Gross Confection Bar Facebook page this is "Bamboo steamed lemon cake, rhubarb, coconut, cherry, almond, mango." It's a beautiful mess that is making our mouths water.
Portland pastry chef Brant Dadaleares is taking it to the next level with plans for a dessert only restaurant called Gross Confection Bar. Our city has a great national reputation as a foodie destination continually getting rave reviews for all the amazing meals being served. What a great idea to focus on everyone's part of dining, Dessert!
From the Kickstarter page: "Gross Confection Bar will be a dessert-focused restaurant and bar to be located in the heart of the Old Port district in Portland, Maine. Gross will provide a unique and consistent restaurant experience featuring an ever changing selection of high-quality artfully-plated desserts, cocktails, dessert wines, digestifs, and exceptional service. Gross will also provide a consistent selection of enrobed ganaches, fruit pates, bon-bon, entremets, late night savory snacks and desserts to go."
You can even help get this super tasty idea off the ground. Learn more in the video below. We can't wait to eat dessert first. Best of luck Brant!
