Sweets Week: Day 5: La Silhouette

La Silhouette is such a lovely restaurant.   I tried the popcorn creme brulee at an earlier visit.  This time, I got the honey mascarpone mille feuille with toasted oats and cherry curd.

Verdict:  The desserts at La Silhouette are top notch in craftsmanship and flavor.  Pastry chef Jeff Sytsma knows what he is doing.  This dessert was out-of-this-world good, and one of my new favorite desserts at a New York restaurant.

My friend got the dark chocolate pot de creme with toasted hazelnut marshmallow and graham cracker ice cream.

Verdict:  Of course, I tasted this one too.  It’s a wonderful upscale version of s’mores.

We also got an added bonus of lime marshmallows and almond financiers. They were both perfect.
