Sage American Kitchen - Elegant and Scrumptious Sweets

Last week I attended a fundraiser event for the LIC Community Boathouse. Held at the Foundry, a trendy space near the East River, it was a nice--albeit crowded--community event that brought many LIC and Astoria residents together.

I was disappointed to see that much of the food from Tuk Tuk and Manducatis Rustica was fast gone. However, I made sure to get my share of yummy desserts, courtesy of a wonderful catering company called Sage American Kitchen. Sampling their brownies, I especially loved the Germanchocolatecake variety, topped with gooey coconut-pecan frosting. The brownie itself was super rich with a prevailing dark chocolate flavor that was fantastic. In addition to the brownies, Dan and I tried their oatmeal raisin cookies, which were out-of-this-world soft and surprisingly light. Although I didn't get a hold of one, Dan praised the coconut mini-cake and so did Meg.

Sage is located on Jackson Avenue in LIC as a take-out shop as well as a catering company. They're especially popular for weddings, and have even fed the cast and crew of HBO's Sopranos and Sex and the City. Impressive...and they're right here in our neck of the woods.

  1. I had one of the brownie triangles, which was fantastic as well. And yes, the coconut cookie was out of this world! It was so good.

    I really need to get down to this place and check it out in person! I understand they have expanded seating a bit, so it's less take out and more cafe.

    Now I'm hungry! :D

  2. That's pretty cool that they have more seating. I think it's different than the Sage General Store though - I know, kind of confusing. They are both on Jackson.

  3. Ah, you know I may be mixing them up. So confusing! Are they run by the same people?

  4. I don't think so - I think they're different.

  5. The Sage Kitchen is closed down, I believe, and they've moved down Jackson Avenue and opened up the Sage General Store.

    Anyone know for sure though?

  6. Sage closed down and reopened as Sage General Store a block down on Jackson Ave.

  7. Cool - good to know. I was confused on whether it was owned by the same people. Thanks for clarifying.

  8. Sage Events does all the catering and Sage General Store is where you can buy all the food. You can still take out but there is a lot more seating which is nice for their awesome brunch on the weekends.

  9. Yeah - their brunch is pretty phenomenal!
