Espuma, Rehoboth Beach: Bacon and Egg Salad

Signature dish at Espuma in Rehoboth Beach: bacon and egg salad

It seems we can’t get enough comfort, especially when it’s not the same old kind of comfort, especially when it vaguely resembles breakfast food. Though it continues to evolve, the bacon-and-egg salad is a staple at Espuma, says chef-owner Jay Caputo. The current version features a soft-boiled egg—crispy edges, runny yolk—atop a lasagna of  braised bacon, Parmesan cheese and tomato sauce with grilled romaine lettuce and a balsamic gel. “It is truly tremendous,” Caputo says, “familiar flavors presented in a unique way to excite the palate.” 28 Wilmington Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-4199, espuma-restaurant.com
