Satisfy Your Craving

Underneath Cans Bar, in a sleek space featuring drink specials, live music, and hookahs, might not be where you'd expect to find some of the city's richest desserts. But that's exactly what Crave Dessert Bar is serving up, in a spot where the fashionable uptown crowd mingles over martinis with their sweets. The cream of the indulgent crop is the Victorian, pictured here. A creamy chocolate icing gives way to three layers of rich chocolate cake and pillowy chocolate mousse. It's just as decadent—and delicious—as you'd imagine.
