But these days I'm craving Tiramisu ($9)—constantly. Theirs is the traditional sort with ladyfingers flown in from Italy. It's slightly boozy, espresso-soaked, and layered with whipped mascarpone and eggy zabaglione. No surprises here, but well executed all the same, and sometimes that's just want you want. Bring on the winter winds and chill! I've got my tiramisu.
