Which NYC Restaurants Do You Visit Just for Dessert?

It's 9 or 10 p.m., you're finishing up a meal, but the dessert menu looks a little lacking. You're liking the restaurant vibe and want to keep it going...just somewhere else. So where do you go?

It's a hard question to answer, and love as we do dessert cafes like Chikalicious and Indessert, they don't always fit our needs for a restaurant dessert drop-in.

For that we're more likely to hit Otto for gelato or Hearth for cider doughnuts and a glass of wine.

How about you? What are your favorite restaurants to visit for dessert?
