The Popover Cafe on the Upper West Side

I had no idea what a popover was before moving to NYC. Now I know they are those buttery, eggy, air-filled bread treats most often served at steakhouses.  The Popover Café on the Upper West Side is known for them and we recently went for an afternoon snack after walking in Central Park.  It’s right next to NYC institution Barney Greengrass and is now an institution of its own, really thriving for almost 30 years.  

You can order just the popovers in an order of 3 that come with strawberry jam or butter, or most items on the menu come with a popover.  I liked the popover.  I probably won't ever crave it, given the other insanely delicious carb loading options in the city, but am glad I tried it.
