Chef/Baker/Artist Nicole Rucker was definitely in the house and in charge as I stopped into the newly-opened Fiona for a quick bite. The space is welcoming, and the service was confident and brisk. Dinner service will be forthcoming soon, and I am looking forward to it.
Luxurious sesame butter, with sesame brioche, Japanese black & golden sesame paste, sea salt, and honey, paired with hot ginger honey-lemon toddy… Bite of the week! This piece of perfectly toasted bread with aromatic and dueling-yet-delicate sesame paste is just marvelous.
Lemon chess pie with whipped cream… The crust is outstanding. This is a righteous slice.
If you are looking for a Thanksgiving pie from them, they ARE open on Thanksgiving day at 8AM, but expect a queue, as the pies are sold first-come, first-serve.
