Mascarpone French Toast @ Toast

Walter P. Nov 25, 2002 09:34 PM

The French Toast at Toast Restaurant was featured on a recent episode of Unwrapped. Can anyone tell me about the French Toast with Mascarpone filling? It looked interesting and I’m thinking about trying it at home since I don’t live anywhere near Chicago.

Thanks for your help.

    i was briefly obsessed with toast's mascarpone french toast last year. an order of french toast comes with three square "logs" of french toast; i usually order two mascarpone and one strawberry-filled (you can also have them plain). if you order the "french toast orgy", it comes with fresh yogurt (real stuff, not the super sweet kind) and granola. both orders of french toast have strawberries and blueberries on the side. and yes, three pieces are enough, have always been more than filling.

    as for toast, it's more tolerable now that it's trendiness has worn off, but it's still best to go later, around 2:30, to avoid crowds. note that they are only open till 4.

      I second j3s's opinion. The French Toast Orgy is very good, but I think it is quite easy to burn out on it. Too rich!
