Every time we visit New York City, we are happily overwhelmed by the number of dessert options available to the average glutton (Momofuku Milk Bar, anyone?). Then we get back to Los Angeles, and while our waistlines might appreciate the dearth of gluten-heavy, non-vegan treats available here, our sweet teeth do not. That’s why, whenever anyone invites us to Bottega Louie, we say yes without a second thought. We have no idea what’s on the dinner menu, but we know exactly what the glass cases at the dessert bar hold, and we are good for at least a box full.
