Summer Desserts Debut at Nobu

Nobu on La Cienega has you covered - with three new options from pastry chef Gabriele Riva. This ever delicate-yet-decadent, deconstructed cheese cake is made with Cheesecake mousse, sable breton, raspberry coulis, and sweet gorgonzola gelato. Yes - gorgonzola gelato! (Indeed, I am on a gorgonzola ice cream kick and cannot wait to try this one - especially after the phenomenal Pear-Gorgonzola-Walnut ice cream from Tai Kim of Scoops at the Eat My Blog Bake Sale over the weekend.)

The dessert is a mix of orange segments, light goat cheese cream, baby arugula, carmelized pecans and sorbet. I’m curious to try this one out; I can’t say that I’ve ever had a salad for dessert, before. And don’t forget that there’s a fresh summer cocktail menu to lead into or even supplement your desserts…
