Are bread spreads coming back?

IMG_8872We had dinner the other night at One Midtown Kitchenthe restaurant that kickstarted the Concentric Hospitality group (Tap, Parish, Two Urban Licks, among others). I’ll write more about the meal later, but for now: check this. Slices of warm semolina bread sided by large spoonful of cardamom carrot puree. A couple of months ago The Spence served coconut spread with its bread.

Could this late-1990’s trend of serving butter substitutes be making a comeback? Has anyone seen something similar elsewhere?

Haven’t seen anything yet, but I’m all for it. Not sure why they went away in the first place. (BTW – I hope your review of OMK is a positive – I’ve dined there at least every couple of months since it opened and I’ve never been disappointed).

Yes, we got a goat cheese spread with our bread at Park 75 Saturday night. It was very tasty!

The bread service at Kimball House in Decatur is served with three different chutneys/jams (savory and sweet) along with butter. Not that I tried them – I was there for the oysters.
