Starting Saturday May 1st, Luis Villavelazquez, the pastry chef of ~ABSINTHE BRASSERIE & BAR~ and Arlequin Café, will be offering riffs on bakery classics at the new Arlequin Booth at the Saturday Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. (You may have sampled his wares already at the Thursday market.)
Items on the spring menu will include a S’mores cupcake with graham flour cake, chocolate cake, and toasted marshmallows; a malted cupcake with banana cream and Oreo frosting; a strawberry- and tobacco-infused scone with crème fraîche (keep that one away from the kiddies); a rhubarb-ginger scone; a spiced ramp and provolone biscuit (that sounds amazing); and signature cookies including double chocolate cherry fudge. Booth hours are going to be every Thursday and Saturday 8am-2pm, and it’s going to be located next to Blue Bottle Coffee’s exterior stand.
