Desserts at Tiny's and the Bar Upstairs in Tribeca are created by Anna of the popular NYC-based blog, VerySmallAnna—and they're both delicious and consistent. Whimsical creations include an ice cream sandwich with walnut-studded cream cheese semifreddo, flanked by moist cuts of a ideally dense and not too sweet carrot cake—candied carrots on the side too! There's a wobbly and luxuriously smooth panna cotta made with Ovaltine and dotted in cheerful milk chocolate meringues (pictured above). It's perfect for the summertime weather; a light, refreshingly cool finish to any meal.
But if you're hankering for something on the rich side, look no further than Anna's five-layered peanut butter and banana cake, all topped off in a white cloud of marshmallow frosting. Citrus fans will find comfort in the bright lemon tart with a brûléed surface and kumquat preserves. But what's the point in picking when you should really just have them all?
