Best Lemon Tart: William Dean Chocolates

Best Lemon Tart

This justifiably famous chocolatier has already established himself as the Bay area’s five-star culinary supernova for his colorful ganache and caramel-filled creations. But the same attention to detail produces a scrumptious lemon tart with the most luscious sharp citrus filling in a perfect crust topped with beautifully piped meringue that is lightly torched to a golden brown. It’s a pastry for your dreams. 2790 West Bay Drive, Belleair Bluffs, 727-593-0656, williamdeanchocolates.com.
