Ice cream, sorbets, and gelati. They're hardly the main focus of restaurant desserts, but often play an important supporting role, without which the dessert would not be nearly as good. From a quenelle of bold sake ice cream to pair with tempura rice pudding at 15 East, to ginger-lime ice cream and sticky toffee pudding (finished with fresh grated lime zest!) at Veritas, click through to find the five restaurant desserts we love where the ice cream is just as good as the star of the plate.

In The Midnight Hour: Cafe Lalo

In the Midnight Hour Zachary Feldman Post a comment

Luckily, its brushes with stardom haven't deterred it from being one of the best uptown spots for late-night treats. Lalo could easily find itself in the pages of fellow SE:NY columns Date Night and Sugar Rush—it guns hard for European quaintness with its Christmas-lit trees and numerous Leonetto Cappiello posters and over 100 different cakes, 29 cheesecakes, and numerous fresh fruit tarts.

Top 5 Restaurant Sweets of 2010

Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

Picking just five restaurant desserts is no easy feat—but in this list, you'll find plated desserts that are both delicious and accessible.

The Best Taiwanese Shaved Ice in New York

Lingbo Li 33 comments

There are a million international varieties of shaved ice, but Taiwanese-style holds a special place in my heart. While some have fruit toppings, you'll traditionally find sweetened beans, jellies, taro root, and related goodies, tied together with a generous drizzle of brown sugar syrup, and if you're lucky, a hit of oh-so-sweet condensed milk. No wonder I was determined to find New York City's perfect bowl. I pared the list down to 11 spots in Manhattan and Flushing—and found the best shaved ice in New York. More

Soft-Serve Ice Cream Stands in Upstate New York

Brad Thomas Parsons 32 comments

One taste of home I always associate with summer is soft-serve ice cream, especially the classic twist, a sweet spire of equal parts chocolate and vanilla ice cream. More often than not these ice cream stands were attached to a miniature golf course, but even when that wasn't the case, a soft-serve cone on a summer evening was always the perfect way to wrap up the day. Here is a little lickable tour, with stops at: ZEMS, the North Pole, Troops Scoops, Coneheads, and Nicky Doodles. More
