Pichet Ong (of P*ONG, Village Tart and other popular bakeries) is the pastry chef behind this whimsical spot. The whole restaurant looks like a candy store (like a smaller version of Dylan's on the UES), and appears to be perfect for Ladies Who Dessert. While cake slices do tower high on the plate, the most attractive menu item is definitely the Earthquake in a Fishbowl.
It's an actual fishbowl that's filled with utter deliciousness - the bowl is almost the size of surly-faced lady next to us !
And that fishbowl can fit so much ! Key lime pie, chocolate caramel cake, Brooklyn blackout cake, hot fudge, butterscotch pudding, chocolate, vanilla, salted caramel ice cream aaaannnd caramel sauce. And a crunchy, crunchy bed of crushed chocolate cookies at the bottom.
Han's Nonsensical Rating: You'll feel a little lame eating here, but it's fun ! And it's dessert !
