Kozy prides itself on its organic and local produce, grass-fed meats, and wild-caught seafood — and, of course, the creative ways in which they put them together on the plate. Breakfast is a big deal here, and we often choose it at lunchtime, even though the Greek salad with shrimp is dependably light and delicious. Among our top picks for the most important meal of the day: The Star, an open-face omelet with a heap of quarter-size slivers of venison sausage, bits of bacon, farm-fresh squash and spinach, and a smattering of raw cheddar. And you need not be overserved to dig the Hangover Helper, which, although billed as an egg dish, really is a mountain of grass-fed ground buffalo on a nest of sautéed spinach and mushrooms, with a couple of scrambled eggs thrown in for good measure. Oh, and a mound of just-mashed guac — but, hey, it’s good fat.
All of Kozy’s desserts are gluten-free, and you can buy cakes by the slice or whole to take home. Think Italian wedding cake, carrot cake, German chocolate cake, macaroons, chocolate chip brownies and many more.
