Eric Battite says the stuffed French toast is his favorite item on the menu.
The Real Deal Deli's owner Eric Battite dished out on his favorite dish at the popular deli on Centre Street, what it's like to own multiple restaurants, and announced his newest restaurant. Patch: What's your favorite item at The Real Deal Deli? Battite: All of the paninis. Recently we have switched the bread we use for those to a Rosemary/olive oil foccacia that is light and crispy on the outside and airy and soft in the middle. A great new addition to our bread line.

A few ideas on after dinner treats in West Roxbury that you can have at home.

I winnowed my choices down to three that were delicious and affordable and greatly helped to satisfy my sweet tooth. BROWNIE SUNDAE (Shaw’s, $1.79 – on sale for 92 cents) It consists of four layers of, from the bottom up, a moist, fairly rich, cakey chocolate brownie, slightly sweet whipped cream, …
