Sweets lovers rejoice! It’s time to skip dinner and head straight to dessert. One of NYC’s most sensational restaurants, Thomas Keller’s Salon at Per Se, just introduced a five-course dessert-only tasting menu.
Some may say that the $65 pre-fixe price tag (service included) is a bit much to spend on sweets, but the succession of inventive, expertly crafted confections from one of the country’s greatest culinary teams is far from your typical desserts tasting.
The menu lineup from celebrated pastry chef Elwyn Boyles will change daily, and includes inspired dishes such as popcorn-cola with sundried raisins and buttered popcorn sherbet, poached meringue with coconut, Champagne mango and toasted coriander ice cream, and chef Keller’s signature cinnamon-sugared brioche doughnuts with silky cappuccino semifreddo. If you’re not pining for an entire sugar-filled series, the Salon also offers five à la carte desserts each night. How sweet it is.
