DESSERT ONLY at top restaurants

Just wondering which restaurants will do this. I'm looking for a dessert sampler plate of the highest quality. I would be arriving on a weekend night after 9:30. Will the high end restos let me only come for dessert? Perigee? Splendido? Mildred Pierce? Any recommendations are greatly appreciated.

  1. I haven't tried it, but Perigee offers a specific dessert tasting menu after 9pm. So they'd pretty much definitely let you come just for dessert.

      1. I was at Perigee for their dinner tasting menu about 2 months ago and was not impressed with the desserts they offered for the two of us.

        1. I was craving for Joanne Yolles' famous coconut cream I dropped into Pangaea on Friday to see if it was still available; they replaced it with the banana coconut cream tart. Since I didn't have time to dine in, they let me get it to go. I ate it at the office and it was heaven! If they let me get takeout, I'm sure they'll be willing to serve only dessert. I highly recommend Pangaea.


        2. Boba (90 Avenue Rd.) has a sampler dessert platter ("the Grand Dessert") with a bit of most of their desserts for $13. It's well worth it! I think that it would be OK to come in at that time for coffee and desserts only, but you may want to call to confirm this.

            Have yet to try Boba, but I've heard from a few people that their dessert guy, Mike Small, is an up-and-commer.

          2. Thank you. Keep em' coming. Has anyone tried the dessert for two at Rain?

            1. Pangaea gets my vote. I am sure that you could have dessert only at the bar (I've done so myself!), but not sure about the dining room. However the people there are pretty cool and I think they'd be flexible. I can't remember if they have a dessert sampler, so you might want to call to ask. Perhaps they would even just make one especially for you -- never hurts to ask!
