Dessert doesn’t get its proper due. How many times have we been asked if we’ve “saved room for” dessert, as if dessert is on the standby passengers list, only getting a seat in or stomachs if the appetizers and mains haven’t filled it to capacity? We suspect many diners don’t really think about dessert when they’re choosing a restaurant — you go for the entrees, and if at the end of the night something on the dessert menu (always smaller than the other menu) catches your eye you might deign to split it with somebody else.
Here’s a list for people who think about the last course of the night first, who proudly say they want their own dessert instead of this “splitting” nonsense, who are on a first-name basis with multiple pastry chefs. The restaurants we’re noting here all have great savory food — but you don’t want to leave any of them without seeing what their sweeter sides have to offer.
As usual, this list is not ranked; it’s organized geographically. Know of a spot that should be on our radar? Send us a tip by emailing email@example.com.Read More
