6 Cozy Confections to Keep Out the Cold

CROSSROADS KITCHEN - Peach Cobbler Sundae (Los Angeles)

Warm and homey, this stone fruit cobbler comes with a heaping scoop of fresh peach and coconut ice cream.


Crossroads serves up Mediterranean-inspired, innovative vegan fare by Chef Tal Ronnen. Informed by seasonal Southern California ingredients, the creative menu is complemented by custom-made libations, artisanal small-batch spirits and select wines.

MYRIAD GASTRO PUB - Stone Fruit & Berry Pecan Crisp (San Francisco)

A rustic skillet of juicy peaches, plums and berries topped with a crumbly-crisp crunch and crème fraîche ice cream.


At Myriad Gastro Pub, Chef/Owner Trish Tracey dishes out globally inspired comfort-food classics with a California twist. The cozy eatery offers up seasonal menus of snacks, small plates and entrees, along with inventive sides and desserts. Reclaimed wood, handcrafted tile and vintage accents fill the charming space.

GOTHAM BAR & GRILL - Gotham Chocolate Cake (New York City)

Rich, chocolatey goodness served warm with salted almond ice cream.


Located on a tree-lined Greenwich Village street, Gotham Bar and Grill captures the energy and feel of a Parisian brasserie in a distinctly downtown setting. The lively, approachable restaurant boasts an award-winning seasonal New American menu, as well as a vast and varied wine cellar complete with hard-to-get vintages and small production wines.

JOURNEYMAN - Apple Crumble (Boston)

A mouth-watering apple-malt crumble served a la mode (aka just the way we like it) and a touch of fragrant micro-basil.


At Journeyman, nearly everything on the New American menu is made in-house, based on seasonal and local produce. Housed in a brick building that was previously a pasta sauce factory, the space feels both industrial and homey with plenty of warm, reclaimed wood — an ideal setting for sharing one of their scrumptious desserts.

SALERO - Churro Y Chocolate (Chicago)

Fresh churros with whipped-salted chocolate, espresso pudding and creamy milk jam.


Salero serves modern takes on classic Spanish dishes and pintxos. Wood tables, white brick walls and hanging warehouse lights make for a rustic yet chic vibe, while the spacious, lively bar serves a wide array of creative cocktails.

TOSCA - Classic Italian Desserts (Washington D.C.)

From creme brulee to carrot cake, this spot’s got plenty of classic Italian desserts to warm you right up.


Tosca serves up fine Northern Italian cuisine focused on fresh local produce and house-made pastas. The elegant restaurant features natural wood decor and luxurious dining seats. A variety of American and Italian wines are available to complement the fare.
