Best Rhubarb Dessert

I want to go on a sampling tour of the best rhubarb desserts that fellow chowhounds can direct me too. I don't care if it's pie, custard, ice cream, etc. As long as it has rhubarb and is done exceptionally well, I'm in.

    If the rhubarb/strawberry crumble is available at Cafe Mogador, it's very good. I doubt it's the best rhubarb dessert one could find, but I thought I'd mention it, anyway.

      Little Owl has some great fruit crisps. I think I've had a rhubarb there in the past. Not sure if it's currently on the menu.

        I'm not sure if they still have it, but recently Jean-Georges was doing a rhubarb dessert quartet. It would be a splurge but probably worth it-- just call & check first that it's still on the menu!
