Hazel's Northeast plays up small-town cafe vibe

Grandma would feel "hip but not scared"

The most decadent breakfast is the Drunken Banana French Toast, which makes a mockery of most caramel rolls. Thick slices of eggy bread are ladled with practically enough of the sticky goo to fill one of the La Brea pits—a baby mastodon could happily drown in it. Add a smattering of warm banana slices, rum-soaked raisins, and crushed pecans, and regular French toast, with its sparse sprinkle of powdered sugar and light drizzle of maple syrup, starts to look sadly underdressed. The Drunken's portion size could satisfy even the appetites of late-night partying collegiates or teenage boys known to measure their cereal intake by the box.

Speaking of teenage boys, the Sieve household raised four of them, but so far Adam and Andrew's other two brothers are simply Hazel's customers, not employees. But depending on how their careers pan out, perhaps they will some day rejoin the family restaurant workforce.
