Sugar Rush: Minetta Tavern's Souffle for Two

Sugar Rush

Your daily dose of something sweet.


The proper way to close up a meal at Minetta Tavern, post-burger, post-steak, post-bone marrow (not to be missed!) is with the souffle for two. It comes in two flavors: chocolate or Grand Marnier. My companion and I went with the latter, which was nothing short of heavenly with a billowing sugar-dusted surface and an interior all at once warm and cozy. You'll break through many layers in this souffle, starting with a slight surface crunch, then warm airy light body and deep in the center, a near molten, pudding-esque wonder—the luxe creaminess cut by clean, citrusy bites of mandarins.
