Appetizers are all cool, and entrées are as much essential, but one thing that we, the New Yorkers adore is dessert. It’s for real – we feel as much about ice cream and cookies and brownies as Romeo did for Juliet. A day without something sweet is not a day at all, at least, not a day with joy.
If you’re looking for the dessert, and are in our city, you’re definitely in luck. NYC has your sweet tooth covered – everything from a simple ice cream to a warm, molten soufflé.
New York City is home to many crazy food concoctions. Its dessert scene is undoubtedly one of the best in the USA. Our seemingly unending love affair with macarons, doughnuts and cupcakes is your sugary proof.
And while there is an infinite number of crave-worthy desserts to indulge in, it would be wise to remember that not all desserts were created equal. So how do you come up with the essentials? By getting to tasting it. Of course, that can be too much of a task for a naive tourist. And therefore we took it ourselves to compile some of NYC’s best desserts and cram them into a list. And here are the sweet results.
