Steven and Janice Gingher from The Sage Mule.
Downtown Greensboro has a new bakery and bistro.
The wise mule opens at 608 Battleground Avenue, next to Crafted the Art of Street Food and Preyer Brewing.
It serves breakfast and lunch.
Steven Gingher, a graduate of Johnson and Wales’s culinary program in Charlotte, opened the restaurant with his wife Janice. You run the restaurant with the help of the family and some of his Johnson and Wales alumni.
Gingher said the name was a game called Greensboro, where Sage is the “green one” and Mule which is a cross between a horse and a donkey or donkey.
Breakfast is served all day and includes items like Blue Plate Special ($ 8) with two eggs, bacon or sausage, hash browns, cookies, or toast; Breakfast cassoulet ($ 10) with white beans and strong ragout, local pork with fried eggs on focaccia toast; and ABC Toast ($ 8) with avocado, pickled golden beets, tomatoes, poached eggs, and red onion jam on sourdough bread.
There is also a sourdough waffle with a daily topping according to the chef’s mood.
In addition to the homemade bread, there are croissants, muffins, bagels, cookies, and cinnamon rolls ($ 4 each) baked by pastry chef Cherish Cronin, who is also a Johnson and Wales graduate.
