What happens when two Trotter’s alums join forces to open a breakfast-and-lunch spot? Foie gras “pop tarts,” that’s what. But we found that it's better to play it safe at this collaboration between Gregory Ellis and Steven Fladung, with dishes such as honey-lemon doughnuts, big bowls of Israeli couscous and a soufflelike slice of quiche. The success of these dishes may tempt you to stray to one of the more esoteric items, like the breakfast noodles. But don't do it—the noodles swim in a broth that's boring and bland, and that's not what 2Sparrows is about (if you order right).
