Here's another pairing we wouldn't have expected: Sgr. Lucchesi just reported Elizabeth Falkner has signed on as consulting pastry chef at Kuleto Embarcadero giant, Epic Roasthouse. Remember she just did something similar for Bubble Lounge. Isn't it nice to see E-Falk has some distractions (and additional income streams) as she weathers the long-delayed opening of her Fillmore Street Citizen Cake outpost? Yes.
Now here's a look at the previous Epic menu, for your reference. Apparently the beignets aren't going anywhere but Ms. Falkner has already added devil’s food cake and apple tart tatin to the mix. And in sort-of-related news, Gourmet Live will be blogging from her SoMa restaurant, Orson this Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. in honor of participants in the Scharffen Berger Chocolate Adventure contest. Falkner will be out-and-about on the Orson floor at that time; so you can see how she looks in person as opposed to on a TV or a blog post, if that's your thing.
