I do not do bumper stickers. EVER.
So that should tell you how much I love the food at "the GO" as it's affectionately referred to here in town.
Every time I eat there I feel better about the world in general.
And that has a lot to do with my friend Sarah O'Kelley, one of the restaurant's chefs and co-founders. I met Sarah way before I ever tried her food and I liked her immediately. She's friendly and down-to-earth, and she makes all of the patrons in the restaurant, myself included, feel like they are family.
But I'm not the only one who feels this way.
While I was lucky enough to write about Sarah at Garden & Gun, Sarah and her peeps at the Glass Onion have had serious national press in practically every book that exists right now, from Bon Appetit to Esquire.
And every bit of the praise is well-deserved.
Below is a photo of a slice, a snapshot of vintage plates (which Sarah suggests using to serve this sort of sweet deliciousness at home), and the recipe from her recent cookbook that details the story behind the confection and how to pull it together. Enjoy. And big thanks Sarah!
