Rich Table Watermelon Sundae (Food of the Week)

Dessert San Francisco

Picture the best granola you’ve ever eaten, with crunchy chunks of grains and nuts, your favorite milk and fresh fruit. That’s a pretty damn good, but no breakfast granola can touch the Watermelon Sundae dessert I recently enjoyed at Rich Table. At the contemporary California restaurant in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley from chefs Evan Rich + Sarah Rich, they recently closed dinner with a terrific dessert that was clearly inspired by a bowl of granola.

Their Watermelon Sundae ($11) starred squares of juicy watermelon, tiny scoops of tangy buttermilk ice cream, basil for savory’s sake, and popped sorghum crunch made with the grassy, caramel-like sweetener that’s popular in the South. This was a great bowl of food that I would be just as happy to eat for breakfast or dessert, even if they don’t call it granola.
