Espresso from Cafe Grumpy in Chelsea. Mellow.
Dessert from the Spot Dessert Bar in the East Village. This was the Yuzu Eskimo – Blackberries, raspberry foam, chocolate pearls, oreo soil and chocolate ganache.
It was a neat combination of flavors. The most interesting was the Yuzu – a Japanese citrus fruit. It had a very interesting tart herbal flavor. The raspberry foam was very tart as well and predictably light. The oreo “soil” was delicious as I love oreo cookies and the chocolate was yummy as well.
I can’t remember what my friend Diane got. I think this was the White Miso Semifreddo with berries, olive oil, and raspberry sorbet with an almond tuile.
