Hi Chowhounds,

I'm going to be in NYC and am looking for a restaurant that serves up amazing bread pudding. Criteria: Rich, Decadent, Not overly mushy, crisp-browned top, preferable ingredients: chocolate chunks, cinnamon apples, or caramel sauce, nuts, or liquor infused sauces welcome also!

    You will have to check out the dessert truck then. I saw them on Bobby Flay's Throwdown and it looks like they make a mean bread pudding. http://www.desserttruck.com/

      It's right in Time Square (44th St) and packed with tourists (the other location is on the Upper West Side), but the bread pudding at Carmine's is absolutely delicious - it's rich, decadent, chocolate chunks, liquor-infused sauce - about 90% of your criteria!! LOL! It's my absolute favorite bread pudding. It's the holiday season, so the line for a table might be huge, but you can get it to go.

        This isn't a restaurant, but the best bread pudding I had was at Sullivan St bakery. Take it home, heat it up in the oven. realllyy delicious
