Pumpkin Fun at Elm City Social

January 11th, 2016 Posted by In the News, New Haven Restaurants 0 thoughts on “Pumpkin Fun at Elm City Social”

John Brennan lightly browned parboiled perogies on each side in butter, giving them a firm, lightly crisp texture, and an almost nutty flavor.

After hitting the perogies with some salt and pepper, Brennan—co-owner and executive chef of one of New Haven’s hottest new eateries, Elm City Social at 266 College St.—tossed in a generous amount of caramelized shallots into the hot pan. When the perogies were ready he added them to a plate with the crême fraiche.

Perogies are a deceptively simple, comfort food of Eastern European origin. Brennan is not.

What he is is someone who has cooked in kitchens in and around New Haven for about 10 years before he and Ryan Howard decided to open Elm City Social back in July.

The other day he was in the kitchen making his dumplings —with a twist.

Instead of a savory white potato and cheese filling for the perogies, he reached for that most ubiquitous gourd of the season—pumpkin.

Then he served them with a generous smear of cinnamon and nutmeg-spiced crême fraiche.

2015 OmNomys Celebrate the Best in Food in Fairfield County

“We had one of the most epic days recently where we went to the Elm City Brew Fest. Then, nicely buzzed, we rambled on down the street to Elm City Social, lead by Chef John Brennan. What followed was probably one of the most exciting cocktail drinking episodes this year. While all the cocktails had a nice balance, it’s hard to pass up the aptly named Rubber Ducky which features a baby rubber ducky that floats atop your drink. All kitsch aside, it’s our favorite drink on their menu, though the Cereal Milk Punch is a great way to end the night with beer barrel bourbon, Kelt VSOP cognac, cereal milk, and Lucky Charms floaters.”
