    I've seen this topic mentioned before, and I remember reading here that Spago can do an all-dessert TM. Haven't done it myself, so call ahead and find out if/when they do.

      Water Grill will do it (at least they did when Duncan Koa was still there).

      Providence can also do it I believe.

        There are specific times that you can make reservations for the dessert tasting at Providence, they are listed on Opentable. You could try calling the restaurant to check if they will accept a reservation for a different time.

        **Dessert only reservations accepted exclusively at the following times: Monday through Friday at 6:00pm or 10:00pm
        Saturday 5:30pm, 6:00pm, or 10:00pm
        Sunday 5:30pm, 6:00pm or 9:00pm

          If you want, these places offer huge dessert sampler/platters shareable by two or three people:

          Matsuhisa/Nobu - if you ask for several desserts, they'll combine it prettily all on one huge plate.http://static.flickr.com/142/324645739_5df63fc864.jpg
          I've also requested a single-plated dessert tasting at Patina: http://static.flickr.com/143/32464721...

          Have fun and report back!

            How much do these tastings usually cost and how much dessert do you get to try?

              Someone told me about a dessert tasting menu at the Ritz in Pasadena a while ago You can check to see if they still have it.
