Best RW Dessert
I have found that the restaurants with the best desserts tend to be better experiences during RW. Best desserts that I have seen include 1789, Taberna del Alabardero, Mie N Yu and Il Mulino--were good experiences. The desserts at Smith and Wollensky, I Ricchi and the Caucus Room were disappointing.
Which restaurants do you think have the best RW desserts?
Just got back from a RW lunch at Cafe MoZU. The whole lunch was positively wonderful (they seemed to have lots of extra staff and we actually got done in an hour!) but their "Citrus Praline Tart with Strawberries [actually raspberries] and Passion Fruit" was the best RW dessert I've ever had.
Thumbs up for RW at MoZU!!!
Last night we went to Bistro Bis, and my boyfriend got the peach desert, which was a thin, wafery, buttery waffer, with peach ice cream, another waffer, with peaches on top. While I thought the peaches weren't quite soft enough, he loved it. In fact, the waiter overheard him say that he loved it, and saw that I had barely started my chocolate cake, and brought out another peach desert for him Which my boyfriend also ate all of. I will say, that is the sort of treatment that will get him back after RW!
Last January I had an amazing dessert at 1789...probably one of the best I've ever had in DC. It was a chocolate and vanilla bread pudding. But not typical in any sense. I believe the bread pudding was bad out of croissants with a hint of cinnamon. It was incredible.
The key lime pie at Prime Rib was really good as well.
And the dessert I had for lunch yesterday at Sonoma was excellent. I was with a friend so we shared out desserts. We got 2 cheeses...nice size as well, enough to share. And a wonderful warm mixed berries crisp. It felt very homemade and had all the elements of a perfect crisp.
Is it not one of the best desserts you've ever had???? I thought it was incredible. I was suppose to share it with my boyfriend but I think at one point I literally blocked his spoon with my spoon! :) And I never finish desserts...especially after a heavy 3-course meal.
Mmmmmmm 1789 bread pudding!!!!
