  • Eclipse Chocolat
    After earning a master's in sculpture, William Gustwiller immediately put all of those years of education to good use?though not in the way you might expect. He brought his artistic eye and sculptor's hands to the world of exotic chocolates, and he handcrafted enough of the sweets to open up Eclipse Chocolate in 2007. Now, Gustwiller and his disciples sculpt about a dozen pastries and nearly 100 confections, including "quirky truffles" that were profiled in Food & Wine Magazine. Their artistic media: natural, organic, and sustainable ingredients. With a delicious layer chocolate as its mortar, Eclipse Chocolate has forged a partnership with Guittard Chocolate of San Francisco. The organization works directly with cacao farmers and other agents to source the high-quality, sustainable and fair-trade cacao that Eclipse Chocolate uses exclusively in its products. Much of that cacao makes its way to Eclipse Chocolate's onsite bistro, where chefs incorporate it into buttermilk pancakes and blend it into what Travel and Leisure called some of "America's Best Hot Chocolate." The bistro, which also won a Silver Fork Award from San Diego Home & Garden magazine in 2013, even finds ways to incorporate chocolate into dinner: just look to the mascarpone meatball, which the chefs serve with a vanilla bean crostini and a cocoa balsamic drizzle.

  • Fabrison's
    Not long after beginning their relationship, Fabrison?s co-owners Fabrice and Alison?from Marseilles, France and Columbus, Ohio, respectively?traveled to Europe together, seeking a change of scenery. Inspired by the warm hospitality of European caf?s, they returned home to open their own cozy shop, combining their first names to form its distinctive moniker. Crepes are the specialty at Fabrison?s, with customers perusing a menu of sweet, savory, and breakfast iterations of the traditional French food. The La Galette combines ham, mushrooms, and spinach with a fried egg, whereas the L?Isabelle keeps its ingredients as simple as Count von Count?s locker combination, mingling sugar, butter, and a topping of powdered sugar. Patrons can begin their mornings with a spot of espresso and Fabrice?s Breakfast Crepe, filled with sausage, bacon, and spicy harissa sauce. Rounding out the menu is a selection of patisserie-style desserts and pastries. The couple?s friends and family helped them plan their caf??s look, with Fabrice?s mother sending over photos and swatches from European cafes, which influenced its bright palette of crimson, gold, and washed turquoise. Alison?s mother sewed the gingham curtains on the windows, and artist Derek Little created the vivid painting on the front window. Fabrison?s also shares French culture with the community through regular evening events that include crepe-cooking classes, French movie nights, French speaking classes, and French kissing workshops.

  • Bawarchi Dosa
    The aromas at Bawarchi Dosa hint at a diverse range of dishes from around India. There's cumin, turmeric, and mint, drifting from food influenced by the traditions of Chettinad and Hyderabad. But despite those time-honored recipes the focus is, obviously, on dosas. Dosas are a type of Indian crepe, and at Bawarchi they're filled with everything from lentils and other veggies to paneer cheese or spicy chutneys. The restaurant also offers meat dishes, such as chicken vindaloo and lamb rogan josh, wine and beer, and a sprawling buffet, where hot Indian dishes pour forth steam like robots trying to talk about art.
