It’s the final day and a half of Gross Confection Bar Kickstarter campaign and pastry chef Brant Dadaleares still has a little way to go to reach his $35k goal. Funds raised by the campaign will be used to pay for the build-out of the restaurant and for refrigeration equipment.
Gross Confection Bar will be a dessert-focused restaurant and bar to be located in the heart of the Old Port district in Portland, Maine. Gross will provide a unique and consistent restaurant experience featuring an ever changing selection of high-quality artfully-plated desserts, cocktails, dessert wines, digestifs, and exceptional service. Gross will also provide a consistent selection of enrobed ganaches, fruit pates, bon-bon, entremets, late night savory snacks and desserts to go.
I’ve been seeking out and happily consuming Dadaleares’ desserts for many years at Fore Street, Eventide/Honey/Paw, Central Provisions/Tipo and at his dessert pop-ups.
