5. Patisserie Chanson’s Dessert Bar

For those looking for a more lavish way to celebrate, Patisserie Chanson’s Dessert Bar is the perfect place to do it. Purportedly a former speakeasy, the lower level of Patisserie Chanson in New York’s Flatiron District has been transformed into a permissible (and much preferred) type of bar: a Dessert Bar. The bar’s 6-course menu, “The Art of Dessert,” begins with truffle popcorn and includes other creative concoctions like yuzu honey meringue, moliterno with black truffle, and more.

But don’t be fooled, this unique gastronomical experience comes at a price — $68 to be exact. However, in our minds, this is totally worth it. Where else can you expect to find Apple Jalapeno dessert dishes in New York City?
