Dessert at Gramercy Tavern

I was just about to state the obvious: that Gramercy Tavern has phenomenal desserts.

But then again, the Danny Meyer landmark is renowned for its cocktails, its environment, its friendliness, its quality, and for its very affordable soup and sandwich combo. What’s not to love about this restaurant?

After indulging in all the aforementioned, Bennie and I didn’t need dessert, but, being who we are, we decided to split one thing, my choice. Always a sucker for bread pudding, I chose the butterscotch bread pudding. Paired with its sweet-tangy pear sorbet, topped with a buttercrunch disc, it was perfection.

But, hey, our kind waitress asked, you don’t mind if we give you another dessert, do you?? Just because? Here, chocolate pudding with a thick layer of salted caramel and toasted brioche croutons.

Giant miam.

Oh giant miam for sure. If I were to venture over there before the end of this week, do you think I could earn an extra dessert?

Hope so!

It's quite possible, Frances! The table next to ours was given an extra dessert, too... and there are so many delicious choices!

Why does my little bowl of Flan look so sad and un-pretty?

I just picked up his book at the library today. What a strange coincidence!! Can't wait to read it. The cover says he believes service is everything in the restaurant business.
