What are the desserts like at Summit?

Answers from Our Experts (2)

Summit’s dessert selection changes frequently, but its signature style is unwavering. Elegant and intricate but not frilly thanks to their fresh seasonal bent, sweet dishes range from the likes of a caramel tart with apricot-lavender marmalade and chocolate sorbet to chilled peach soup — Colorado peaches are famed far and wide — with hazelnut pound cake, nougatine whipped cream and basil gelée (savory herbs are often sprinkled throughout the dessert menu). On the simpler side, there are ever-changing assortments of unusual ice cream and sorbet — such as pinot noir or spiced cherry port — as well as a fine international cheese selection.

The Summit desserts change seasonally and always include a selection of homemade ice creams and sorbets as well as chocolate and fruit desserts, cakes, tarts and pastries, all with a French inspiration.
