Sugar High


We went to dinner at a fabulous French restaurant for Olivia's birthday. The meal was magnificent, but we couldn't contain our excitement for the dessert {we'd heard of it's existence, but needed to confirm for ourselves}. It did not disappoint. It was a giant glowing dome of sugar! Inside the dome was a delicious chocolate cake with candied kumquats and vanilla bean creme anglaise. The cake was amazing, but the glowing dome of sugar was the highlight of the meal.

I saw it done on the Food Network Channel and have always wanted to try to replicate it - how fun!

Welcome Jill! The name of the restaurant is Raoul's. It's located in Soho. The address is 180 Prince Street. Between Sullivan and Thompson Streets.

I'm not sure if every chocolate cake dessert comes with the sugar dome or not, so make sure you ask for it. Another delicious dessert to try is the Banana Bread Pudding. For appetizers, the pear salad is sooo good! I would recommend reservations. If you try it out, let me know what you thought!
