I really love fancy dessert.
I love dessert tasting menus with wine pairings.
I love innovative modern desserts that include savory ingredients, but I dont really have to have them.
Are there any hip, modern, wine-barish dessert cafes in manhattan that serve the types of desserts you get at fancy restaurants? I want to go to a place for the dessert, but also for the nightlife.
I hear that there is some really fancy hot chocolate around town (city bakery maybe)
Also. Are there any great bakeries (chocolate croissants) or gelato places that are charming and great for lunch-time lingering?
