earl grey creme brulee?

  • c

I recall seeing this dessert item on the menu at an upscale NYC restaurant, but I can't for the life of me remember which one, and a quick search has so far turned up nothing. A little help here?

Alternatively, does anyone have suggestions for other interesting tea-themed desserts?

  1. I may be mistaken, but I think that was at WD-50.

    1. Never been to WD50. I've had earl grey creme brulee else where though, back in the days when I could splurge on high end restaurants. I think maybe the first time was at Mercer Kitchen in SoHO. There were other places that serve them as well.

        I don't know if and when they serve it anymore, but Claudia Fleming's Gramercy Tavern Dessert Cookbook has a recipe for earl grey tea ice cream that's out of this world. I made it this summer and it was one of the best ice creams I've ever had.

        1. chikalicious? not sure, but i think they had something like that there.

            it was darjeeling panna cotta with peach sorbet.

          2. I had it in a 3 creme brulee tasting at Blue Fin
