Acclaimed pastry chef Monica Glass has been named Kevin Sbraga’s executive pastry chef. Glass, who was the pastry chef at 10 Arts before a stint at Fish, left Philadelphia for two plus years in Boston; where she worked at chef Ken Oringer’s Clio and Uni, winning Food & Wine magazine’s best new pastry chefs award for 2013.
The West Chester native is debuting her first dessert menu at Sbraga, but will also oversee the dessert operations at the Fat Ham and Juniper Commons.

For Sidecar’s monthly “Wing Thing” collaboration, Brian Lofink and company have invited Greg Garbacz from Juniper Commons to come up with a wing. Garbacz has developed a Taco Wing, topped with tortilla puree, Guajillo sauce, queso fresco, diced red onion and micro cilantro. The wings will be on special throughout the week, and this evening Garbacz and his crew will be hanging out at the bar and eating wings.
Can these taco wings compare with the beer wort braised Foobooz wings that were featured last month? We doubt it, but then again, Garbacz is a professional and these do sound pretty great.
