$55 for a chef’s specialty dessert tasting for two
- One shared specialty dessert
- One shared cake experience
- Two chocolate experiences
- Wine pairings with each course
- Reservations required
Each chocolate experience includes a trio of confections in either dark, milk, or white chocolate, whereas the cake experience pairs a cake—such as Dolce Amore’s flourless chocolate torte or the Marzipan Princess—with a scoop of gelato in flavors such as honey lavender or salted caramel.
According to the owners of Dolce Amore, their story began when a man's gift of gelato stirred so much passion in his sweetheart that she gave him their first kiss. Perhaps that's why the intimate cafe puts so much love into its sweets. Bakers craft a range of delicate French pastries and cakes, which are served alongside creamy Italian gelato and artisan chocolate. And yet not all of the kitchen's offerings are sweet: house made waffles, crepe omelets, crab-wich sandwiches, and a croque monsieur are all available. And each one of these dishes can be washed down with Illy coffee, or a small selection of international wines and beers.
In addition to food, Dolce Amore also serves art: its walls showcase a gallery of works by international artists. Though most of these are paintings, special exhibitions have also featured hand-made accessories and priceless sculptures, like a pure-gold statue of a broke college student eating noodles in a Styrofoam cup.
