Even after you indulge in the dessert courses from Per Se's tasting menu, the good times keep on rolling. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant lets you linger with a delightful selection of mignardises on gleaming silver tiers, including housemade chocolates, gelées, marshmallows and truffles. The tiny desserts come from pastry chef Elwyn Boyles, the overseer of all things sweet at this New York restaurant. His sweet treats are as sophisticated as the restaurant's savory dishes. Boyles creates layered confections with a sense of whimsy, such as the refreshing Florida Cocktail of a ruby grapefruit biscuit with Buddha's Hand soda, candied cara cara oranges and brown sugar ice cream that we were lucky enough to indulge in on a recent visit.
