Gabe's is my favorite local restaurant, so I had been meaning to try out the Saturday brunch for the longest time. When my husband and I finally went about a month ago, I decided to try the featured quiche. When it arrived at the table, I thought I had the wrong order because it didn't look like the typical slice of eggy pie. The server assured me that this mass of flakey, phyllo-type crust puddled with quichey ingredients was, in fact, the quiche. One bite, and oh my goodness, where have you been all my life?! It was the most tender, flakey, but gooey luscious thing I have ever put in my mouth. It's really nothing like quiche (very little egg) and it deserves a new name as a totally unique creation! Like so many of Gabe's signature dishes, it was drizzled with balsamic reduction and beurre blanc. I've been back for more and am obsessing about eating it between Saturdays.
