The Sweet Life
One of the most frequent questions I stumble upon in Got Plans? is from people in search of a mellow post-dinner destination or a spot for delicious desserts. Baltimore has Little Italy, Los Angeles has its own cupcake row on Third Street and you can throw a rock and hit a bakery tray in New York City. Though Baked & Wired makes a mighty fine cupcake, the hours and supplies make it an unreliable choice. Luckily, it sounds as if this area will finally have a go-to dessert/cupcake destination this Monday.
Buzz, from the restaurateurs behind establishments such as Evening Star Cafe, Rustico and Tallula, promises baked goods from muffins, egg sandwiches and Belgian waffles at 6 a.m. to midnight cupcakes and pies.
Scruggs, who formerly sweetened Vidalia and Equinox, assures that though cupcakes appeal to all ages, the store won't be geared to kids. "The plan is for it to jog memories of when you were a kid. We're planning to offer modernized versions of classics." Look for the beloved cupcake to appear in chocolate, vanilla and red velvet form, while cake flavors will extend to lemon curd, raspberry and the Buzz Bumble Bee. Everything, including the special Buzz chocolate bar, will be baked in-house.
At night, Scruggs plans to "serve post-dinner plated desserts" with coffee and, eventually, wines and cocktails. With free Wi-Fi access, plan to take your time clicking around online as you come out of that sugar coma.
