All-organic Bridgeport restaurant.

Our Review

Pastry chef Maria Solis (aka Nana) and her sons, Omar and Christian, preside over this genuinely friendly, slightly crunchy upscale diner, which generally adheres to the standards set by the USDA's National Organic Program. Menu selections include a breakfast burger, crowned with a runny egg and smeared with aioli, and the "Nanadict," two cheese-stuffed pupusas topped with poached eggs and house-made chorizo in poblano sauce, a colorful and creative take on the standard. Banana-hemp buckwheat pancakes (see "crunchy") were remarkably light and airy. Soyrizo is a surprisingly successful vegetarian alternative to the real thing, and we also enjoyed the mascarpone-stuffed French toast. The inventive chow and positive energy outweigh the occasional service bumps—and when you think about it, really, if you're in a rush you probably shouldn't be doing brunch. Lunch brings sandwiches, more burgers, a house-made soup of the day, and salads; dinner is more upscale.
