Best banana pudding in NYC - in a restaurant
My husband's birthday is coming up and as a die-hard Southerner, he loves banana pudding. Any recs on a restaurant with excellent banana pudding? I would want dessert to be an unexpected surprise.
His favorite banana pudding (in NYC) is Magnolia's, but it isn't available in a restaurant, and he eats their pudding all the time so I'm looking for a new version.
I did not know that! My girlfriends and I are always fighting over which version of bread pudding we're getting. Good to know.
Magnolia does have really delicious banana pudding. I remember enjoying Rack & Soul's banana pudding in that simple, American way, but I don't know if the resto would work for a "die-hard Southerner."
Not a fancy place, but Lanskys bannana pudding is amazing.

I had a great one at Georgia's Eastside Barbeque. It even got the stamp of approval from my partner, who is Georgia-born-and-bred :)
