Following up on my meal at Smoque, I decided to seek out dessert. The only sweet option at smoque was cobbler (which I wasn’t in the mood for), so I decided to look elsewhere.
I didn’t know anything about it walking in, but apparently the propietor Mindy Segal won the James Beard Foundation Award for Outstanding Pastry Chef 2012. Sounded like a pretty strong place to stumble into!
I ordered the brioche donut squares with fudge and caramel corn. Also a cup of french press coffee. Both the coffee and the dessert were really good. There was about 10 other items on the menu that I would love to try. Next time I’m in town, I suppose…
If you’re ever in Chicago and are looking for a place to go to for a post dinner dessert, check this place out. The dessert menu was quite impressive!
