The first thing you'll notice about the Tiramisu ($7) from Giano in the East Village is how large but flat each serving is. Wheres most tiramisus in this city tend to go for height, they keep it "traditional" here, as the waiter explained. Worry not; this is an excellent slice of tiramisu. It offers a silky, full-boded and barely whipped mascarpone (similar to Motorino's) with just a single layer of espresso-soaked ladyfingers. The ladyfingers are dusted in cocoa on either side before a cover of that velvety, supple mascarpone. Do add this to your list of must-eat tiramisus in the city.
