The Restaurant Dessert Thread

cappucino Feb 2, 2012 03:45 AM

I am a dessert person. I have been a bit disappointed lately (and by that, I mean, in the last few years) with the caliber of desserts I get from the restaurants I have visited. I feel that an upscale restaurant should have delicious and beautifully presented (creative) desserts. Especially for 8 to 10 bucks a pop. Does anyone have a NY area restaurant (or Northeast) that serves high-end and delicious desserts to recommend? Please specify if the desserts were creative and unusual.

    Lavender funnel cake at Basil with basil gelato. Seriously creative.

      Pardes desserts are amazing.

      last week I had a coconut flan sauced with avocado puree, accompanied by chunks of white melon and serves with wedges of filo dough crisped in duck fat and crusted with coconut. I'm not getting the description quite as it was on the menu, but the flavors, the mouth feel the whole experience was heavenly. Simply heavenly.

        Pardes. Creative, beautiful, delicious. (And it goes without saying, entirely homemade.)

            I like the frozen blueberry crisp at Mike's Bistro

              I'm a fan of the peanut butter bomb thing at Le Marais.
