Eos

Although it's known primarily for its excellent wine cellar and its imaginative take on fusion cuisine, Eos is equally adept at the art and science of fabulous desserts. Recent examples have included a sort of über-Twix bar made of house-baked shortbread, milk chocolate ganache, coconut sorbet, and coconut brittle; a napoleon of vanilla gelato, sake-marinated blackberries, and Scharffen Berger chocolate; a wonderfully moist tiramisu ribboned with caramelized bananas; and best of all, a dazzling reinterpretation of baked Alaska in which a mascarpone-ginger-sugar pumpkin mousse is frozen, brûléed, and served with fresh figs. Order three or more of these memorable creations and they'll arrive at your table, family style, on a huge, beautifully decorated platter. (Eos will even offer a personalized "Happy Birthday" in chocolate-icing calligraphy across the china if the occasion warrants.)
