6 Fantastic Desserts

The Editors with Jessica Elliott and Valerie Jarvie | June 14, 2018 | Feature Features

The forty-two finest things hitting the Dallas food scene.
The Sicilian pistachio mousse from Flora Street Cafe is a sweet revelation.

Flora Street Cafe: Sicilian Pistachio Mousse Almost too pretty to eat but impossible to resist: pistachios three ways (in a chilled soft sable cookie, mousse and roasted nuts) with sweet sorbet, Swiss meringue, thyme-infused lemon curd and lavender creme. $12

Sixty Vines: Sweet Board A sweet trompe l’oeil salute to the ubiquitous wine bar meat and cheese board: “salumi,” made with dark chocolate, pistachios and figs; faux cheese, with white chocolate fudge and cranberries, sea-salt shortbread “crackers,” and more. $9

Bistro 31: Olive Oil Cake The perfect end to a meal at Alberto Lombardi’s intimate Highland Park Village jewel box: classic moist Italian pound cake topped with caramelized orange supreme, fresh blackberries and vanilla ice cream. $9

Tei An: Chocolate Cake with Caramel Sauce An unexpected nod to the west at Teiichi Sakurai’s famously religious temple to authentic Japanese cuisine is molten dark chocolate cake. Here it comes with your choice of caramel sauce, white chocolate, maple syrup or Japanese black honey. $7

Uchiba: Fried Milk As if caramelized ice cream, chocolate mousse, toasted meringue, cookie crumbles and ganache were not enough, this party on a plate includes bite-size globes of warm vanilla custard enrobed in a sweet, crunchy coat. $9

Fearing's: Lemon Creme Fraiche Custard Celebrate summer with a Southern accent—lemon custard served on a petite graham flour cake, molasses and honey-inflected ice cream, garnished by cute-as-a-button tiny ginger-glazed blueberry pies. $10
