Del Posto, New York City
The expansive space that hosts New York City’s Del Posto promises a luxurious dining experience. All facets of a meal are accounted for, by a team of experts in their field. For desserts, that’s pastry chef Brooks Headley, who won the James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry Chef in 2013. More recently, he authored a cookbook (Brooks Headley’s Fancy Desserts) that was released earlier this fall.
Recommended dessert: Browned Butter Panna Cotta. Topped with fresh apples, this dessert brings together a host of textures and styles into one sumptuous whole.
