Best rustic dessert: APPLE GALETTE at PLATT STREET BOROUGH BAR & EATERY

Best rustic dessert

An amazing treat is the flaky rustic apple galette laced with fresh thyme. Perfect, sweet fruit slices are topped with lightly smoked butterscotch and a creamy, seductive molasses ice cream. It seems that sharing desserts is now a trend as well, especially in the current season when diners are watching their carbs and calories. Abandon that philosophy this once. I encourage you to order one for every member of your table. You’ll be happy to have the delightful, seductive galette all to yourself. 1809 W.
