Sweet, Rich, and Decadent, All Together Now
One thing I love is the unexpected. Like when the sun miraculously appears on a day the weathermen have ALL said thunderstorms ALL day – just in time for your patio party. Or when a top political figure says something sensible – and doesn’t then immediately ruin it by injudicious explanation. Or when a pizza place offers something delicious besides their pizza – like dessert.
I have that place for you: Grimaldi’s on 135th Street. They have a seasonal cheesecake selection in addition to their other goodies – and I’ve seen them make them. More cream cheese in one bowl (tub? vat?) than you can imagine. Whipping cream mountains. Caramel drizzled and coconut sprinkled like a tropical downpour. Their current specials include Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Cheesecake chunked up with you can probably guess what. Their Caramel Coconut Cheesecake is a caramel cheesecake with caramel glaze and toasted coconut on an Oreo crust, all topped with chocolate and that whipped cream again. One more important fact: both are off the menu on April 30th so you should hurry on in.
You can always get their dessert trio where you can pick any three of their desserts, including the seasonal cheesecakes special OR their so-called regular cheesecakes along with cannolis or tiramisu. I will just warn you, however, whether you pick one or three, such decadence is fattening – or so I hear. But splurge. Just this once. Or in my case, three times.
