Red-velvet cake at Fort Grace Local

At this sweets parlor in the back of locavore eatery the General Greene, pastry chef Elle Lawrence (Mille-Feuille) takes a seasonable stance on dessert. Find a daily selection of cakes (rosemary-infused apricot-pistachio, clementine pound) and small-batch ice creams in Asian-pear, salted-caramel and pumpkin-pie flavors. A rotating roster of muffins (honey-cream-cheese-and-corn), cookies (malted chocolate chip) and house-made candies (ancho-chili cinnamon bark) are also on offer, along with Counter Culture coffee. The 18-seat space sports requisite Brooklyn-style digs—it’s dominated by a communal farm table—but also takes design cues from ’50s soda shops, with vintage lighting and a marble-tiled floor. 229 DeKalb Ave at Clermont Ave, Fort Greene, Brooklyn (no phone yet)
