      Can you say a little more about the lounge at 1200 Bistro? Descriptions, please.

      1. re: KathyR

        I am not big fan of the bistro side of 1200 Bistro. I prefer the lounge for a nightcap and dessert. It's a great space but more importantly the creme brulee is tasty.

    2. Two words - Dilettante Chocolate. Great Ephemere sundaes and various ice cream dishes.

      1. There are several places, but I need to point out two specific desserts that I love that you can find on the hill:

        El Diablo from Tango.
        The Diplomatico from the Resaurante Machiavelli

        But if your going *just* for desserts, Dilletente is not bad, but I prefer B&O on Belmont Ave

          Gotta second Tango's El Diablo. Definitely worth trying. I'm also a sucker for the Coupe Caramel sundaes at Dilletante's.

        2. Bacchus at Harvard and Roy serves an excellent greek custard...I can't remember the greek name but it is a farina custard inside a phyllo crust with orange water and honey. Impeccable...and amazing with the strong greek coffee.

          1. The hazelnut brown butter financier (bite sized pyramid-shaped cakes) with coffee-flower honey and coffee caramel at Licorous

            THey even have NOnino Amaro (digestif) which (surprisingly) none of the upscale Italian restaurants around here seem to offer
