Best Bra-less Cochinitas: Sonder Social Club, Goat Cheese Cake

Sonder Social Club, Goat Cheese Cake 

The individual goat cheese cake is baked in a faceted mold to resemble an ancient Aztec temple. There’s an almond crust and lemon zest to give citrus notes to the goat cheese. The plate looks like a concrete skate park for Smurfs; it’s not quite a half pipe, but the curved edges cradle the cake and fresh whipped cream garnished with candied zest and mint. Thin slices of tiny Adriatic figs look like a school of fish swimming up a thin stream of port wine reduction. All the tastes meld beautifully. —Jon Palmer Claridge
