Dessert after performance at BAM

Any suggestions? Something really nearby as my parents are meeting us, and they are not one for walking long distances (long=well, probably more than 5 minutes away)

It'll be around 9:30 pm or so.

  1. The Chocolate Room on 5th Ave is about 10 min walk away from BAM, closer to transit

      I've only tried to go there once (around 9:00P) only to find that The Chocolate Room ran out of desserts. Is that a common occurrence?

    2. Stonehome Winebar is two blocks from BAM, has good desserts and offers the option of having wine, a cheese plate or some appetizers instead of/in addition to dessert and coffee. Similarly, Scarpetta, a block closer, has good food as well as dessert.

        Scarpetta, as in the restaurant on 14th St. near 9th Av. in Manhattan? Are the two places related?

      2. I've had nothing but good experiences at Berlyn, the new restaurant across the street from BAM.
