Chocolate Pistachio Cake

As the cycle goes, enjoy a drink or two, fill up after a couple courses at dinner, and get ready to go, then, the dessert menu arrives. Actually, the server asks if the dessert menu is of any interest, claim to just “take a look,” and, then, end up ordering something despite being completely stuffed.

This time around, at Hugo & Sons, in Brooklyn’s Park Slope, it was the flourless chocolate pistachio cake that raised eyebrows. Paired with an orange mascarpone cream, it was an amazing – and perfect – selection to end the evening. Given that it’s a flourless cake, it was very rich, but the mascarpone and pistachio served as a good contrast and balanced the overall taste and texture.

While the rest of meal was just as fantastic, a visit would still be worth it just for the cake.
