One of famed pastry chef Antonio Bachour’s signature creations, the Gianduja Cake has been on the menu of every single one of his outposts since day one. This gorgeous mini dessert is a hazelnut cake delicately layered with chocolate hazelnut mousse and coconut gianduja whipped ganache and then topped with hazelnut praline. It’s sized just right for a personal serving, meaning everyone might want to make sure to order their own.
September 2019: We love our desserts as much as we love our South Beach diet, admittedly. It’s called balance, folks. And when the sugar cravings hit, we don’t squander calories on mediocre treats. Nope, we make sure to seek out the city’s top confections to ensure ultimate caloric pleasure. Case in point, this list of the best desserts in Miami, which we freshened up with family recipes, icebox cakes and pies big and small—some tiny, in fact. Size notwithstanding, every single one of these sweets is sure to impress.
Looking for the best desserts in Miami? We understand. Not everyone has a sweet tooth, but the ones who do know that dinner is only a warm-up for the course that really matters. Sure, we’ll grin through a meal at the best vegetarian restaurants in Miami and accompany you to the best steakhouses in Miami—but what we’re really looking forward to is dessert. Whether it be an off-the-wall flammable dish or a new twist on an old classic, we want it on a plate in front of us. We don’t care it if ruins our beach day abs.
