I love tiramisu, i prefer mine on the wet side. but i cannot remember the last time i had a good tiramisu that was not all cream or all cake, that wasn't dry or wasn't blah.
i hate to say this, i swear it's been several years--but i feel like the last good tiramisu i had was at the cheesecake factory.
I've looked for recipes, but i'm deterred by having to make any effort in the kitchen. anyone have a great tiramisu spot they would rave on and on about?

Gotta tell ya...it's the vanilla bean cream they swamp the tiramisu that makes it good at CPK. Good, but definitely not authentic.
I've had memorable ones at Guido's, Toscana, Vincenti, Drago, Marmalade Cafe (I know, I know, but hey, it's good), Beaurivage (on-site pastry chef makes daily specials, so call before you go). In fact, I love all of Drago's restaurants' desserts, so I'm going to assume the tiramisu at all their locations is pretty yum.
Btw, Pecorino has this pear tiramisu that's out of this world.
The best tiramisu I've ever had was at a cute, little Italian place called Novecento in Culver City. Rich and delicious
