This gleaming Haitian bakery also offers a steam table of luncheon delicacies, all sided with white rice or dirty rice and red peas (something like kidney beans). The choices typically include stewed chicken, turkey fricassee, and alegumesa-a scrumptious puree of eggplant and green onions dotted with carrots and beef. Not displayed on the steam table is griot, a made-to-order dish of deep-fried pork morsels topped with a shredded cabbage relished laced with scotch bonnet peppers. Among pastries, savor a rectangular version of palmieraa French puff pastry coated with granulated sugar.
