The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene
Elvis brownie at Sip Tea Lounge, Huntington
The very elegant Sip Tea Lounge in Huntington has let down its hair a bit with a new confection: the Elvis brownie. “Come get 'a hunk a hunk' of chocolate banana peanut butter goodness,” says owner Nicole Basso.
The brownie is the creation of Basso’s pastry chef, Christian Dyckman, and is based on the sandwich — bananas and peanut butter on toast (sometimes with bacon) — that was reputedly the King of Rock and Roll's favorite. Dyckman's tribute has bananas inside and peanut butter frosting on top and “goes very well with our Assam tea.”
The Elvis brownie is $2.75 at Sip Tea Lounge, 286C New York Ave., Huntington, 631-683-5777.
