Crispy Baked Mozzarella at Union

Officially debuting May 12, Union’s new small-plates menu features seven fun, shareable items, including this ooey-gooey wonder. A generous slab of mozzarella is coated in perfectly salted Parmesan-garlic breadcrumbs and baked until the thin shell can just barely contain the molten deliciousness. Laid down in a pool of spicy red tomato sauce, the little rectangle is now ready to crack open. Union’s chewy house bread is the ideal delivery system for the melty cheese and for daubing up any remaining drops of sauce. $17, in Aria, 693-8300, LightGroup.com.
