We are going to see Mamma Mia this sunday night and doing pre theater at DB's Bistro Moderne and are looking for a post theater spot to hit. I would love a desert tasting place with a wine pairing. Does anyone have any suggestions on where they do great desert tasting menus with wine?

Thanks in advance for your help.

    Would a sake pairing do? You could design your own tasting, here: http://kyotofu-nyc.com/index.php?p=376

        If there is no real wine pairing who does dessert the best and we can go there and has a decent dessert wine? Landmarc?

          You could check with Casellula wine and cheese cafe, which is a fantastic wine bar in HK; it also has a dessert menu; they may have wines they pair with their desserts?

        The best place for something like this is chikalicious in thr East Village. Amazing three course desserts with wine options. In my opinion, the best desserts in the city. But they're only open until 10:45 and not sure you'd make it down there after the show.

        So I think Kyotofu would also work as another poster mentioned. They're much closer to the Theater District and specialize in Japanese and mostly tofu-based desserts.

        Also the Bar Room at The Modern has some incredible desserts (not tastings I'm afraid) and a great wine team that can help pair dessert wines, ports, madeiras, etc.

        Enjoy!

            Kyotofu's desserts are Asian influenced but I wouldn't say "mainly" tofu based.

              Perhaps the poster meant "soy-based," which many of them are. I would add that some are aimed at being traditional Japanese desserts, without the level of sweetness often seen in American-style desserts; others stick more along the lines of a traditional American dessert. Their chocolate cupcake is an example (and a personal favorite); the tofu serves to add moistness but the chocolate is still the prime component.

                I stand corrected. I meant mainly soy based desserts.
