Who still serves Baked Alaska???

My wife has never tried it and I couldn't quite describe it to her since it's been so long since I've had it. Is it available anywhere (preferably north of Boston)? Thanks in advance.

  1. Their online menu doesn't list desserts but I'd guess Locke Ober in downtown would offer it. If it's not on the regular menu today, I'm sure a phone call a few days in advance and I'm sure they'd do it for you.

      Yes, L-O does it. It's on their dinner menu (no need for special arrangements).

    2. Do yourself a favor and go to Oleana. They always have it and it is superb. Not entirely traditional given the flavors, but easily the best around.

            I will third this suggestion. The only hard part is saving room for it since the menu has so many delicious items.

              The version at Oceanaire is a very tasty, decadent dessert, but it NOT classic Baked Alaska - it is a chocolate mint pile of ice cream and cake coated in Fluff like marshmallow.

                Yes, a colleague of mine ordered it at the Oceannaire last week during our holiday party and I'd have to agree that while tasty, it is not traditional.

            2. try the continental on route 1 in saugus

                I've had it at the Continental. It's the real deal, and it's really good(as is their baked stuffed lobster).

                  I actually went right to the Continental's website when I saw this thread! They don't seem to list their desserts, so give them a call.

                2. I believe the Phonecian in Methuen serves it.
