Leave it to Jessica Koslow, the chef and owner of Sqirl, to give us sunchokes for breakfast. After all, breakfast is Koslow's main artistic medium. For her hash, the sunchokes are cooked until creamy inside, and served in a cast-iron skillet with a sunnyside egg served on top. It's  a decadent, glorious way to start the day.

If you haven't been back to Superba Snack Bar in a while, it's a pretty great time to visit, particularly for chef Jason Neroni's gorgeous sunchoke ravioli. The pasta is delicate, the filling is plush and sweet, and Neroni amps up the indulgence factor by draping thinly sliced, silky and salty ham over the entire dish. It's one of those plates of food you'll be thinking about for weeks to come.
