After Dinner Dessert

I usually eat my sweets around 3pm, but four new dessert bars scheduled to open at the end of April may encourage me to wait until after dinner. Three are from trendy, famous pastry chefs and one is by an unknown proprietor who is dedicated to chocolate. I admire them all, and always applaud the addition of a dessert venue to NYC. It’s worth noting many of the dishes found at these new establishments will barely resemble “dessert.” Expect a lot of foam, unusual textures and savory ingredients. I may end up spending most of my time at the chocolate place, but I’ll give the others a try.

It’s absolutely fabulous when all information rests on one page. Thanks for the round up! It looks like I should start creating a spreadsheet for my end of June visit.

(I’m coming for the Mermaid Day Parade!)

I believe Sam said mid-may for Tailor. At least that was the word when I ran into him on Easter weekend.

I think that’s the same Cocoa Bar on 7th Avenue in Park Slope, eh?

Wheeeeee! All the new ventures sound very interesting. Love Sam Mason’s creations and waiting to see what Jehangir Mehta comes up with. I am a little wary of any kind of “Indian” influences in Western cuisine. Kelli, have you tasted Jehangir’s line of chocolates inspired by the Kamasutra? Each cany wrapper has a naughty sketch of various positions!

Tailor blows. Very expensive for nothing. It will go the way of room for dessert. Not even good enough to try once. So So small portions for hefty bucks. Save your doe, people. trust me on this one. Did you loather wd-50? You will also loathe Tailor.
