I need to order a Baked Alaska for a party. Can anyone recommend a bakery or restaurant in Manhattan that takes orders?

      daffyduck - have you had one at DBGB or Striphouse? Baked Alaska is one of my favorite desserts ever, and I never see it on the menu these days (I about cried when I saw one at Oleana in Boston.)

        I have had the one DBGB, not Striphouse. I liked it though I thought their sundaes were better. I wish I had tried the Baked Alaska at Striphouse I wanted to split it with my friend but he wanted to try Milk Bar, we ended up walking over and having a bad experience at milk bar. I love Strip House though, the next time I go back I'll definitely try it.

          Yet another reason for me to finally go to Strip House. Thanks for sharing!

        how are the steaks at Delmonico's compared to the Strip House? Specifically the NY Strip? My husband wants a good steak but I prefer seafood and Delmonico's has a better selection of seafood. But if the Strip house is the better NY Strip, then we'll go there. Thanks.

          Delmonico's does the definitive one.

              The beautiful room, the lively bar, the old-time service and - the lobster Newburg!!

                I didn't realize it had been named there - I see what you mean when you said "the definitive one."

            Craftbar used to make a pretty good one. Not sure if it is still on the menu.

              Sardi's has offered it for years, flamed tableside. And Daniel, expensive and worth it, in my opinion, does it very well.

              The best is when Union Square Cafe had, but I don't even remember when that was!

                Does anybody know if ANY of Danny Meyer's restaurants HAVE Baked Alaska?
