Battle of the Dishes

Crepe Bar vs. La Grande Orange: Granola Showdown

Two restaurants known for their fresh and interesting take on breakfast -- it only makes sense to put them up against each other. And, no, this is no battle of the crepes. That would be too easy. This is a battle of granola.

A surprisingly versatile dish, granola is an easy way to peek into the style of a chef: Is it burned, sticky, filled with clusters or fruit? Nutty or oaty? Subtleties like these can easily be overlooked, but granola holds powers that have captured the stomachs of hippies and beyond and that deserve to be respected. So let us find out who bakes up the most honorable granola.
