Dessert-centric Night Out- Suggestions?

I'm trying to find a place to go in January for a night out, to a place that has great desserts as well as great food. I'm hoping to find one of two types: 1) Classic desserts that are not fussy and executed well; or 2) Fun, interesting desserts that maybe can't be found in every other restaurant. I'm thinking along the lines of Cafe Atlantico, PS7, Citronelle, Central, ... which I've had great meals and desserts at. Price and type of cuisine really isn't an issue- although I would prefer to try out someplace new.

Anywhere in NW really would be good, especially if metro-accessible. Thanks in advance Chowhounds, and happy holidays!

  1. the best desserts i've had at a restaurant are at Palena.


    1. my favorite desserts are at Vidalia, food of course is great also

      1. The home made vanilla ice cream and small, to -share, luscious apple pie at Blue Duck Tavern.

        1. The coconut cake at Creme is out of this world delicious. You should call to make sure they have it that night though. And if you are going to hang out on U St. you can also swing over to Busboys and Poets. I had a 5+ chocolate layer cake that was decadent and yummy.

          Cashion's has had nice desserts in the past but I haven't been in a long time.

          And the homemade ice cream and pies at Blue Duck Tavern is quite good.

          1. For those really interest in desserts and indulgence, I believe that Vaccaro's bakery in Little Italy, Baltimore, has a dessert buffet on either Monday or Tuesday nights
