earl grey creme brulee?

c212 Sep 7, 2004 12:03 PM

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?

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

      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.

              Hi c212, Not sure if you're still looking, but they serve an Earl Grey Brulee at Sanctuary T, on West Broadway in SoHo. http://www.sanctuarytea.com/ I'm heading there for brunch on Sunday.

                They have "Roasted Tea Brulee" at Luxee on the LES, it's made with Houji Cha.

                  And its really good, not too sweet and creamy. But not as good as the cheese souffle
