I'm looking for recommendations for where to take my 17-year-old sister out for birthday desserts in the late evening next month. She's from a small town and wants to go somewhere that feels fancy and "New York." We are visualizing a restaurant atmosphere as opposed to bakery, but it would need to be a place that wouldn't mind if we don't order dinner or drinks. Our budget is around $50 for the two of us, including tax and tip, and we'll go anywhere in Manhattan. Would love to do the WD-50 dessert tasting, but that's probably out of our reach budget-wise. Any other suggestions for where to get some great desserts?
