In honor of Eater's first-ever Sweets Week, a celebration of dessert, Eater Boston asked pastry chefs from local restaurants to rave about their favorite local desserts (not their own). Read on to see their picks for the best plated desserts at full-service restaurants, and check out their quick-service picks over here.
The chefs' favorites include two chocolate bread puddings and a corn pudding, several creme brulees, a couple of flans, giant cookies, and more. Some classic restaurants are represented (Oleana, Eastern Standard, Cabot's) as well as some much newer choices (The Hourly, Forage — both recent Cambridge openings). How many of these desserts have you tried?
