Poll of the Week - 8.16.2010

As long as people have been making and eating meals, they’ve been enjoying what comes after: desserts. Always a popular menu item, desserts in New York have been elevated above the main course through the advent of Serendipity’s frozen hot chocolate, Magnolia’s cupcakes, and Momofuku Milk Bar’s “crack pie” and “compost cookie”. In a world where dessert and pastry chefs like Pichet Ong (The Sweet Spot), Karen DeMasco (Locanda Verde), Christina Tosi (Momofuku Milk Bar), and Jacques Torres (Jacques Torres Chocolate Haven) are household names, desserts are no longer relegated to the back of the display counter!

Whether you’re obsessed with Pinkberry’s frozen yoghurt, have had heated debates about where the best cupcakes come from (Butter Lane, all the way!), or can recite Jerry Seinfeld’s ode to the black & white, New York’s desserts are well ingrained in America’s sweet-tooth.  This week’s “Poll of the Week” wants to know, what’s your favorite New York dessert?
