Today we’re going to talk about the most important meal of the day: Dessert! Lionfish isn’t just about the best Seafood. You always have to be thinking about what’s coming next, do you not? Drinks lead to appetizers, and appetizers lead to entreés. Therefore, entreés absolutely have to lead to dessert. It’s the only logical thing we could do. That Spicy Grilled Octopus (fermented chile, crispy garlic, crispy potatoes, cilantro aioli) was the best thing you’ve ever eaten, but let’s be real, it was hot. Of course you’re going to need something to take the edge off before calling it a night.
Listen, we only have four desserts on our menu. This gives you options. Option one: if there are four of you, you each order one, and everybody shares, or option two: you’ve gotta come back three more times after your first visit to make sure you try them all.
Honey Panna Cotta – Farmers Market Passionfruit, St Germain Macerated Blackberries, Burnt Honey Tuile, Sable Breton Cookie
Secret Tart – Caramelized Banana Cream, Coconut Mousse, Sea Salt Butterscotch **Nut Allergy**
Lemon Meringue Crepe Cake – Guava Sorbet, White Chocolate Crumble, Toasted Sea Salt Meringue, Farmer Market Citrus
Churro Ice Cream Sandwich – White Chocolate Crumble, Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, Caramel Sauce
Let’s not forget about our dessert drinks
Let’s forget about counting calories for just a second. You had a phenomenal seafood dinner in good company, and a dessert to remember. Why stop there? It’s always a good idea to check out our Port & Dessert Wine Options. A Taylor 30 Tawny has never done anybody wrong, and may just be the perfect compliment to your Churro Ice Cream Sandwich. It’s probably best if you try and find out.
