Though it began its life as a desserts-only sweets palace, My Most Favorite Dessert Company is a now full-fledged, kosher restaurant serving all three meals daily in its modern, cool duplex space. The menu concentrates on fish, eggs, and dairy, but savvy patrons reserve room for dessert—or head directly for that decadent side of the menu. Breakfast features a long list of omelets, plus a rich Challah French toast. Lunch and dinner choices fall into three camps: salads, pasta, or fish. The fish is generally well-cooked and firm-fleshed, from the pan-seared grouper to the maple-glazed wild salmon. The pastas, however, are often hobbled by a lack of seasoning. For instance, the potato gnocchi, sinking in a gooey pool of pink sauce and mozzarella strands, need at least a kick of salt. As for the desserts, true dairy-based confections reach decadent heights of chocolate, cream, and sugar. The shop also offers pareve, or non-dairy, baked goods, popular takeout options to top off a meat-based meal. Their textures and flavors may seem a little off if keeping kosher's not a concern, but considering the circumstances, these admirable facsimiles are welcomed by observant Jews, as well as vegans and lactose-intolerant diners.


The bakery supplies many better-known kosher restaurants in New York City and offers a wide range of baked goods (dairy and pareve) for takeout, including seasonal and holiday specialties.
