Does anyone know a good bar that serves desserts? I'm a dessert fanatic, love anything from souflees to cupcakes. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

      The donuts at The SS are delish!

        You should look at the wine bar of Eetats unis on the UES.

          Yes, the sticky toffee pudding at Etats-Unis is fantastic.

      Has anyone tried Brasserie 8 1/2 for desserts? It's on my list.

        I did try brasserie and it was kind of awkward and empty (it was their first weekend of doing the dessert thing though...) We ordered the tasting for $25 and it was HUGE! none of the individual desserts really stood out though, it was more quantity over quality. the ice cream bar and the tarts were the best. the strawberry cupcake was also good, but no billy's bakery...

        Does Room 4 Dessert count? That's a "dessert bar ..."

          Sorry you didn't get an answer to this. I remember running across a fairly new place that was supposedly serving only drinks and desserts, if I remember correctly, and had a couple of good write-ups. Can't remember the name...on Cleveland Place, I think, on the east side of the street. Anyone else know?

            that's room 4 dessert and it's closed. You can get some good cocktails and dessert tastings at both Pong and WD-50 and Chikalicious which is more of a dessert bar, also Kyotofu which is a dessert bar/restaurant with lots of sake and sake cocktails.
