You Need Dessert

It's true, you do. And BrickTop's has the answer.

No frills, just the perfect piece of key lime pie.

Let's keep this short and sweet. BrickTop's offers fabulous food, but I was not acquainted with their desserts. Oh, how I was wrong to turn away any and all desserts from the South Park restaurant in the past. I have seen the error of my ways.

How did I recognize this glaring mistake? I tasted BrickTop's key lime pie. Yes, I know we're not in Key West. We're not in Florida. For you purists asking yourself, "how could key lime pie in Charlotte even REMOTELY compare to the authentic no-nonsense standby of the Sunshine State?"

My answer to your question is, "I don't know, but it does."

I have been to Florida more times than I can count, but when I tasted BrickTop's key lime pie, I was transported back. Listen, really. It's amazing. The crushed macadamia nut crust plus the rich, tart, mousse-like filing plus the fresh whipped cream? I die. 

I will admit, it was a tough decision between the bread pudding, giant chocolate chip cookie or the pie, but I feel confident and content with the choice I made. Like a summer cocktail, a well-executed summer dessert is worth it's weight in gold … 

Do you have a favorite Queen City dessert?
