Persimmon drinks, dishes, desserts?

Looking around to see if I could roast or microwave a fuyu persimmon , there were some delicious sounding recipes, especially drinks using persimmon puree and champagne ... in one case sake.

So I was wondering what restaurants have good persimmon offerings ... especially drinks. I'm not looking for boring persimmon salads or things wrapped around persimmon like fancy ham. I can do that at home.

This persimmon drink with vodka, persimmon puree, ginger, nutmeg and vanilla called a Golden Gate sounds good and what I mean about restaurants serving persimmon drinks.

I searched Food Bytes to see what restaurants had persimmon dishes, but it doesn't really capture seasonal dishes and changing menus. All that sounded interesting was persimmon gelato at Persimmon restaurant and warm persimmon and leek tart at Bistro 1869

That last is great because one of the recipes I found that sounded good and I might try is Fuyu Persimmon & Goat Cheese Tart (scroll waaaaay down)

Just want to stress I'm not looking for recipes and just using them as examples of dishes other than the usual seasonal salads most restaurants serve.

Any interesting bakery items. Last year La Farine was making persimmon pudding which I didn't try (anyone had it?).

I've moved from pumpkins to persimmons in my food craving. I seem to like orange-colored foods.

Can be anywhere in the Bay. I'm traveling around this month.
