Trestle on Tenth, located in Chelsea, has a ridiculous blueberry sundae on their menu! It consists of layers on streusel, vanilla ice cream, and blueberry compote all perfectly placed in a large glass. Everything about this sundae is just right. I loved the creamy ice cream and the sweet streusel, but the whole blueberries swimming in a sugar sauce mixed with fresh whipped cream took me to dessert heaven. Head to Trestle on Tenth as fast as you can it’s worth every bite!
Wooly’s Shaved Ice is the absolute PERECT dessert for these hot New York City summer days! I could not get over how delicious this shaved ice was. I decided to try the Strawberry Shortcake flavor and added strawberries, mochi, and whipped cream as my toppings. The flavor was extraordinary. I could not believe how much this “ice” tasted like ice cream! It was also extremely refreshing, cooling me off from the summer sun. I highly suggest trying Wooly’s and enjoying this special shaved ice dessert!
I found the BEST ice cream at a dairy farm in NJ. Bellvale Farms Creamery is out-of-this-world good. You are basically on the farm in a beautiful valley while you enjoy this treat. All homemade, I got the giant cone with extra large scoops (yeeeeaaah…why not?!!) of their Calf Trax and Bellvale Bog flavors. Calf Trax is vanilla ice cream with peanut butter swirl and mini peanut butter cups. The vanilla ice cream was so creamy and thick. Bellvale Bog is dark chocolate ice cream with brownie dough and fudge swirl. It was definitely richer than the vanilla which was a nice contrast. The chunks of brownie made me so

Caffe Palermo is known for the best cannoli in Little Italy, no wait the box actually says “Best cannoli on planet earth.” That’s a lot to live up to, especially for someone who isn’t the biggest cannoli fan. Well, they did it! They’re so fresh, they crumble in your mouth. The filling was cool, soft, and thick. These rich desserts are certainly in a class of their own. I’ve never fully enjoyed cannolis until now. “Baby John” is

My theatre (Something Rotten at the St. James) is right next door to the famous restaurant Sardi’s! Celebrating a birthday in my cast, a few of us headed to the iconic spot for some dinner. To my surprise, Sardi’s has a stand out dessert on their menu. Boccone Dolce is one of Sardi’s specials and it’s made with Meringue, fresh strawberries, whipped cream, and a touch of chocolate. The slice was so light and refreshing. The strawberries weren’t drenched in sugar, making it fresh and simple. The layers were

If you have not been to Cafe Fiorello for dessert you must go! I don’t know how else to tell you, dessert lovers of the world, other than, “GET TO CAFE FIORELLO FOR THEIR CHOCOLATE MOUSSE!” My kind server comes over with two huge silver bowls. First he scooped out two heaping spoonfuls of freshly whipped cream onto a clean plate. Then with what looked like a shovel in the other silver bowl, shoveled slabs of homemade chocolate mousse out onto the plate as well. Before even taking a bite I knew I was in for a treat! The presentation alone sold me. Then I actually started eating and my mind was blown. It was like chocolate velvet heaven this mousse. It was very rich, but not overwhelming and dense yet light. I wanted to savor each chocolate bite. The whipped cream was the perfect accompaniment to balance the chocolate. Cafe Fiorello has been a staple restaurant on the Upper West Side on Manhattan. Its location makes it the perfect pre or post Lincoln Center spot. If you go definitely order this dessert!
