Pastry chefs are sometimes the unsung heroes of the restaurant world. Their names don’t always appear on restaurant websites or menus, and they rarely get the same sort of attention that the celebrity chefs of the world receive. It’s a shame, because the dessert course is a diner’s final impression of a restaurant, and those impressions count.
At each restaurant listed here, diners are guaranteed to have a stellar sweet or a fabulous dessert menu greeting them. From Caribbean-inspired cakes to pavlova and loads of pies, tarts, and brûlées thrown in for good measure, this list of new and classic restaurants is sure to please every sweet tooth in town.
Please note: These are the best desserts found at restaurants, not bakeries or sweet shops. As always, the map is arranged by geographically, not by ranking.
