after dessert sweets and where to get them

Would someone kindly remind me of the (French) name of the sweets that come after dessert? I am looking for a restaurant that would be willing to pack a plate of these to enjoy back at the hotel after an anniversary dinner in Manhattan. Ideas?

      1. Mignardises

        Dine at The Modern then take your dessert trolley offereings (served AFTER the set dessert) back to the hotel.

        1. Every restaurant I have been to that serves mignardises has always been gracious enough to pack them "to go" for us as I can never really enjoy them after eating dessert. But once I am home and have digested a bit, I seem to have room. :)

          1. and what's the correct pronunciation for mignardises?

                Assume 'gn' = 'ny'.
                "Mignardises" is like "Mi-ny-ar-di-se" (The last 's' is silent).
