Hi - A friend of mine is trying to find a place with good bread pudding for this weekend, anyone have any good ideas?

i read somewhere that blue ribbon has a good version, anyone tried it?

  1. Unlikely but true: the Westside Restaurant (actually a diner or luncheonette), Broadway at 69th Street. If you like the custardy kind.

    1. I really liked the banana pecan pie bread pudding at Marc Forgione.

      1. blue ribbon bakery's version with vanilla ice cream is pretty phenomenal...though, i rarely eat dessert anymore. definitely good for 3 people. the bread they use, the ice all works.

        1. re: sam1

          If you go to Blue Ribbon Izakaya, they serve it with ginger ice cream -- and it's the best ginger ice cream ever. Very creamy with a strong ginger flavor. I actually am not a fan of bread puddings but love Blue Ribbon's version, especially as they caramelize the top. The crispness goes well with the creamy interior.

        2. I haven't been to Blue Ribbon, but since people are posting their favorites, I've really liked the bread pudding dessert at Hundred Acres.

          1. ok thanks guys!

            if anyone else has any recs would be happy to hear them
