Here, we make suggestions on where you can find the Top Places for Dessert in Midtown and Design District. Everyone knows that you should leave room for dessert, but there are some destinations worth visiting just for the part of the meal that is supposed to come last.
From the people that brought you Sugarcane, Bocce Bar is one of the newest restaurant additions to the Shops at Midtown offering modern Italian fare. Although the food is exemplary, the dessert selection is playful and soul-satisfying. The kitchen’s take on an italian classic, the cannoli, is expertly prepared by using a honey crisp instead of the standard shell. The new vehicle for the velvety cream offers a crunchier, lighter, and more flavorful take on the cannoli that is only accentuated by the balsamic ice cream that might actually be better than the dessert it was meant to accompany.

The desserts and confections here are baked in house, offering options similar to what your grandmother would make. Word around town is that the best cookies in the city can be found here.
