Sweet potato fritters dusted with cinnamon-sugar. Freshly baked zucchini bread topped with pickled strawberry jam and duck liver mousse. Steak tartare and herb aioli over parmesan toast. Inventive American apps like these abound during Sunday brunch at nopa Kitchen + Bar. They serve as the prelude to creative entrees, like the savory buttermilk pancakes loaded with sausage gravy and the fried chicken and eggs with honey-hot sauce.
It’s no wonder why nopa fills up quickly on Sunday mornings. It also reigns as a favorite spot to hit before a show or a game nearby. In fact, nopa offers a special pre-theatre/game menu every night from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. You get to pick three courses, starting with curried chicken meatballs, mixed greens in champagne vinaigrette, or celery root and parsnip soup. Then choose your entree: ancient grains risotto with veggies, pan-roasted salmon in a Meyer lemon-horseradish emulsion, or beef coulotte steak with herbed fingerling potatoes. Finally, savor olive oil cake, freshly crafted sorbet, or angel food cake with strawberry-lime creme for dessert.
