— A newly-remodeled Dayton restaurant has just “remodeled” its menu.
Dewberry 1850 Restaurant and Lounge inside the Dayton Marriott at the University of Dayton’s new menu features innovative but approachable cuisine.
“We are just pushing the envelope a little bit more, trying to get people to try something different,” Devin Duncan, the hotel’s director of food and beverage, said of the food served at 1414 South Patterson Blvd. in Dayton.
There are only three holdovers from Dewberry’s last lunch and dinner menus: the Brown Street Club, the burger and the P.L.T.E — McDowell farm pork belly with mayo, romaine, tomato jam and a TS farm sunny-side-up egg on a brioche bun, served open-faced.
The restaurant is offering a made-to-order, fresh bread service for $2.
Duncan said he was particularly excited about the bialys created under executive chef Tim Skiber.
The bagel-like treats are made with Parmesan dough, caramelized onion, Kalamata olive, caper-stewed tomato and olive oil.
“When I tasted that, it kind of blew my mind,” he said.

— Late night near the University of Dayton is going to be decidedly more delicious in a matter of days.
Butter Cafe, the popular breakfast and lunch spot at 1106 Brown St., will launch its late night walk-up window Friday, March 30.
The window will serve a limited menu 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
>> FIRST REPORT: March 6, 2018 <<
If all goes as planned, late nights near the University of Dayton are about to get far more delicious.
Butter Cafe, the popular breakfast and lunch spot at 1106 Brown St. in Dayton, plans to begin serving a late-night menu, according to co-owner Sarah Dudley.
“We just feel like it’s a need for late night dining around here,” she said. “There’s not many places that have late night dining.”
>> JUST IN: Grubhub is coming to Dayton
The restaurant hopes to start selling a limited menu from a side window near its parking lot beginning in the next three weeks or so, Dudley said.
She said the window will be “jazzed up” for its new purpose.
Butter hinted at the window last week on its Facebook page:
Opened in the former location of Dolcessa gelato shop in 2010, Butter serves a variety of vegan and vegetarian dishes as well as locally grown, free range eggs, waffles, French toast, pancakes, burgers, salads, baked goods and sandwiches.
Initially, the restaurant’s walk-up window will serve a limited menu on weekends from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m., Dudley said.
Items will likely include Butter’s famed potatoes as well as eggs, breakfast sandwiches and pancakes.
“It will be a scaled-down menu,” she said.
The restaurant employees about 20 people. Dudley said schedules will be reorganized to fill the weekend breakfast needs.
“I feel like it will be a lot busier when school is in (session),” she said.

— Love carrot cake?
You can eat this sinfully delicious treat for breakfast, and don’t even have to feel guilty about it, thanks to First Watch.
The brunch chain offers carrot cake as one of the options when you order the multigrain pancakes.
They’re loaded with shredded carrots, of course, walnuts and raisins and just like any great flapjack, it’s crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. You can get one for $4.79 or a stack of two for $6.79.
“I’d say the carrot cake pancake is the perfect mix of farm fresh food they’re known for, and an indulgent meal that fulfills my sweet tooth cravings,” said local foodie Lauren Turner.
She recommends pairing the pancakes with an order of the Million Dollar Bacon, which First Watch describes as four slices of hardwood smoked bacon baked with brown sugar, black pepper, cayenne and a maple syrup drizzle.

An order of the ‘millionaire’s bacon’ costs $4.99, but it’s on First Watch’s seasonal menu, so its availability may be limited.
