At Abraço, the Pistachio-Lemon Cake is a fine marriage between Brooklyn Larder's Pistachio Cake and the Lemon Loaf from La Masion du Chocolat. The cake, $3, is sold by the toasty, pistachio-dotted slice, a great pairing for your afternoon coffee. Ground almonds are involved in the batter as well, though to a lesser degree, allowing the bright citrus to shine through with each nibble. Hearty, dense and buttery moist, like a reliable pound cake enhanced with plenty of nuts. And if you're a big pistachio fan, be sure to keep eyes open for their excellent meringue-like Pistachio Cookie.
