It’s out with the old and in with the new generation: former right-hand woman of chef Stefano Deiuri (DeSté’s namesake) has taken over the pastry kitchen responsible for the sweet confectioneries found at the sleek Mandarin Gallery pastry shop, as well as Ricciotti and Garibaldi Italian Restaurant & Bar. Chef Tammy Mah has also given the menus a complete overhaul – gone are traditional Italian standards like the profiterole. Instead the new selection of chocolate-, cheese- and fruitcakes, tarts and ten bon bons are lighter, more contemporary, and, apart from the tiramisu, decidedly French. We would have never found a lychee shortcake with Chantilly and vanilla sponge on the old menu, that’s for sure.
Cake slices $4.50-$5.80, whole $28-$48; bon bons $8.50 for three.
