Best Sweet With Meat

Duck Confit Cinnamon Roll at Comme Ça



Like oil and water, some things just don’t mix. Until we tasted Comme Ça’s Duck Confit Cinnamon Roll, we thought sweet and meat were two of those things. But leave it to chef Brian Howard to blow our minds with a savory-sweet combo that’s become a fan favorite on the menu. The freshly baked cinnamon roll is laced with tender duck that has been rendered in its own fat, topped with smoked bacon frosting and served with raspberry compote. Weird, we know, but that’s just how chef Howard rolls.

$14, in the Cosmopolitan, 698-7910.
