SCALLION BISCUITS (pictured above)
Braeburn, New York City.
At Chef Brian Bistrong's Southern-influenced restaurant, servers deliver a basket of the specialty-of-the-house treats to each table. Sliced green onions, white pepper and diced garlic sautéed in olive oil contribute savory notes to a basic biscuit dough; lemon zest adds complementary zing.

Pine State Biscuits, Portland, Ore. Diners have a choice of jam, butter and honey, or house-made pimento cheese-a spreadable blend of sharp Cheddar, cream cheese, sweet pimento peppers and, in Pine State's version, chèvre (rather than mayonnaise, as is traditional in the South)-to accompany biscuits at this breakfast-and-lunch spot.


Bojangles' Famous Chicken & Biscuits, multiple locations. Per company policy, none of the more than 500,000 scratch-made biscuits the Charlotte, N.C.-based chain serves daily is more than 20 minutes out of the oven. This blueberry-flavored variety, drizzled with white icing, combines biscuits' buttery goodness with the sweetness of breakfast muffins.
