Deli at Little Dom's: sweet focaccia of your dreams
This sweet focaccia made FoodGPS' 10 best dishes list and I can definitely see why. I've never had rosemary paired with fruit before, but the yeasty, slightly salty crust topped with tangy grapes, blackberries and blueberries was the best pastry I've had since Ken's Artisan Bakery in Portland. Little Dom's Deli also has coffee, interesting-sounding sandwiches and pasta and sauce to go. Also, cake in a jar -- wherein chocolate cake is baked in a Mason jar and topped with sugary pecans. You can even get roasted Brussels sprouts to go, sadly, though without the bacon they serve it with at the restaurant, as well as bean salad and eggplant caponata. It's a cute spot, like everything else new in the neighborhood, a little pricey...but the focaccia is totally worth it.
