Desserts: Lady M and The Little Chef
We're lucky enough in Princeton not only to be close to NYC, but to have a top-rate pastry shop right around the corner. Last week, after a trip to the Met, my parents brought back a couple slices of Lady M's famous mille-crepe cake. Twenty crepes with layers of cream between, and burnt sugar on top.
On Saturday, some friends were visiting from NYC and Philly, so walking home after dinner we stopped at The Little Chef and picked up some treats. I can't remember the name of this mini-cake, but it was light, chocolatey and cinnamony, and oh-so-pretty. The chocolate-hazlenut torte was rich and fudgy, and redneckhunter's a huge fan of the macaroons, though the plain ones while good, are nothing compared to the ones dipped in dark chocolate.
