5 Decadent Hot-Spots of New York

Luscious Desserts

— March 2, 2008 — Lifestyle
My friends and I have formed our own anything goes club and one of the non-rules is “why not have a banana split for dinner?” Our little cashmere mafia got started one night after a lengthy discussion over chardonnay and appetizers about how we have all been brainwashed into thinking that one must eat certain foods for specific meals. For instance, you've heard the expression “breakfast food,” right? It consists of eggs, certain meats such as bacon, sausage, and ham; and if you wish to tip-toe outside the envelope in a politically correct way, eggs benedict and steak, for crying out loud. What about orange sorbet and vanilla ice cream? Long story short, occasionally, we all get together and eat desert for dinner. It's our way of flipping the bird to the quack up the street and I promise you, we will all live to be 100.

When I came across this article at Luxist, my eyes lit up and my stomach began its ceremonial craving. So, I got on the hook and we made plans to visit the big apple and binge. According to Luxist, these are the best places in NY to binge on decadence:

Falai -- 68 Clinton St.: Famous for chef Iacopo Falai's dark, rum-soaked baba cake.

Café Sabarsky -- 1048 Fifth Ave: Bringing old world coffee together with Viennese tortes and strudels.

Dessert Truck -- University Pl: Outside an NYU dorm, get a little chocolate-bread pudding and stroll through campus.

ChikaLicious -- 203 E. 10th St: A dessert-only stop, the sorbet floating in sparkling wine. (in photo)

Chocolate Room -- 86 Fifth Ave: Anything chocolate you can think, tea, cake -- you name it!

The "dinner food" police will not come and get you, if you indulge and do them all!
