Yes, we know the bacon craze must end. But if a bacon-laced dish works, let it be. The French toast dessert at Butcher Bay in the East Village is one fine example. Four single-bite triangles of French toast (buttery crisp, the sort of texture that only brioche could dream to achieve) is paired with a smooth quenelle of housemade maple ice cream—bold, with an in-your-face maple punch. To finish, there's roasted peanut caramel and bacon crumble. You just can't argue with that.
