Chef Briget Batson took over date spot Gitane last year, but the savory bonbons made with prunes stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in smoked bacon stayed. The savory-sweet combination pairs well with sherry (like they serve at the low-lit bar downtown) and is sure to impress someone special you're cooking for tonight.
