At Azurea, pastry chef Nancy Slatsky incorporates both traditional American and tropical flavors into her desserts. You’ll find sweets like banana spring rolls with banana frangipane and a caramel rum sauce, red velvet cheesecake with a chocolate shortbread crust, key-lime profiteroles with lime ice cream, vanilla bean semifreddo with a cocoa meringue crumble, and a duo of lemon and lavender crème brûlées served with fresh berries and French macarons, among others. Tempted by too many choices? Try the dessert sampler, which, for a mere $11, gives you small tastes of four of chef Slatsky’s favorites. And do save a wee bit of room at the end of your meal for the delectable mignardises you’ll get along with your bill. We swooned over the chocolate bonbons filled with banana-peanut butter ganache and salted caramel — the perfect final bite to a satisfying dinner at the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended restaurant.
