ISO Great Bread Pudding?

Friends just came back from New Orleans and Mardi Gras is bearing down so my husband keeps sending me recipes for chocolate bread pudding a la New Orleans. Any Boston Cambridge restaurant recommendations for a worthy bread pudding, whiskey sauce optional but appreciated - I would rather go out than cook.

  1. The best bread pudding I've ever had was at Le Patissier Cafe at Troquet. Not cheap but very memorable for me.

    1. I just posted about this in my review of Ten Tables Cambridge -- amazing cherry pecan bread pudding with caramel sauce, light and buttery instead of being heavy and custardy like most bread puddings (which are also very tasty, but this one was so much better). I'm not sure if it's a regular dessert, so you might call if you're thinking about going there.

      1. The chocolate bread pudding at Henrietta's Table is second only to my grandmother's. very dense and chocolatey.

        1. I just had the toffee bread pudding at Citizen in the Fenway - just amazing...

          1. I really like the bread pudding at Grill 23 & Bar. Always get it for desert there with a glass of VinSanto. Also, the amaretto bread pudding at Siros/Marina Bay is delicious. These are to can't miss versions.
