Treat your sweet!

Next Tuesday, we’ll be celebrating Valentine’s Day.  Although it’s more of a “hallmark” holiday, it is always a good time to spend with your loved ones, whether your significant other, friends, or family. It is also a good excuse to pick up a sumptuous sweet treat to mark the occasion- to share, of course!  Here are some of my favorite places to get dessert:

Pick up a decadent cake, pie, or tart to go from Soutine Bakery on 104 W. 70th st. It is also a great place for your daily breads, croissants, and pastries.  I enjoyed a strawberry-shortcake cake for my birthday recently, and so I am excited for a reason to get another cake from this little gem on the UWS!

share the love!

For a completely different type of dessert, head down to Todd English’s Crossbar in the Limelight (church-turned-nightclub-turned-shopping and restaurants).  It has a cozy, high-end pub feel, with hearty, meat-centric meals.  The star of the evening, however, was the BACON-TOFFEE PECAN PIE with BOURBON-CARAMEL ICECREAM. It comes in its own little skillet, and was SO GOOD that as my companion was in the bathroom, I finished off hers and made the waiter bring another one!
