A Destination Dessert Dining Experience
I am a dessert fan so when we visited Denver, there was no doubt that our lovely hosts had to take us to D Bar Desserts
D Bar was created by famous dessert chef Keegan Gerhard, one of the nation’s top 10 pastry chefs of 2002 and 2004 by both Chocolatier and Pastry Art & Design magazines, and Lisa Bailey. This place exists because of their mission to “create a destination dessert dining experience…to serve, inform and entertain…” (taken from D Bar Desserts site)
After about 30 minutes of waiting, we were seated inside the warm and cozy restaurant. The place was small, with only about 3 tables that lined one wall and a big table in the middle which can be shared by 12 people, the rest of the seats were at the bar where you could see the dessert chefs put together their masterpiece. Unfortunately Chef Keegan was out of town but the food was spectacular none the less!
The menu was simple and it didn’t take us long to order.
When our orders came I was more than ready to chow.
You could tell hubby really liked this dish
…and those were not even the desserts that this place is known for!
While picking out the sweets we wanted, my cousin in law urged me to get a cup of a limited edition coffee.
A winner of the 2009 cup of excellence award, this medium bodied coffee had apple, caramel, tangerine and floral notes to create an elegant brew.
Now for the desserts…
As we watched the chef prepare our wonderfully plated desserts, I grew more excited at her every motion.
Then finally after she torched hubby’s dessert, the delicious plates of sweets were served!
Molten Cake Thingy Everybody Has…
This was really a winner. Hubby loved it so much he didn’t really want to share if he didn’t really have to…but he had to…so I got a taste of the creamy dessert topped with just a hint of crisp from the torched caramel. Now I don’t think I could look at another crème brulee ever again!
Thanks to our wonderful cousins!
