Where to get the best Bread Pudding

I love Bread Pudding and would love any suggestions about where to go to get a great bread pudding for dessert. Bonus if it's chocolate bread pudding!

  1. Oleana had one that made my knees buckle. it was only on the winter menu which you'd have to call to see if it's in effect.

      Give us more ScubaSteve, I love Oleana & I love bread pudding. But what kinda bread pudding are we talking about here?

      1. re: Harp00n

        I think it's a brown butter bread pudding and it's so, so, so yummy.

          that sounds about right. i just remember it being a classical interpretation. very custardy/eggy with bits/chunks of bread poking through that had been crunchified.

            Thanks to you both....and now my mouth is friggin' watering!

    2. Depends on what kind of bread pudding you like. Figs had one with white chocolate that I thought was way too sweet, but people loved it.

      I happen to love the one at Kouzina in Newton. Cherry and apricot, very yummy.

      I do actually like the butterscotch bread pudding at John Harvard's, but in general I don't like their food (too chain-restauranty).

        1. Sonsie has a great choc. bread pudding. Bricco and Umbria have good bread puddings. Had a decent one at the Good Life w/ banana and caramel.

            I agree w / Joanie that Bricco's is classic and amazing, presuming it's still made w/ the same care as it was under Iocco.

          2. Skipjacks has chocolate bread pudding on their menu. I'm not a conneseur of bread pudding (or spelling of French words), but I found it really enjoyable.
