Profile

Guava has been known to make a guest appearance, and the chocolaty Carnie, which stacks whipped cream and caramel peanuts on a mousse layer, is the closest this underrated shop gets to a Momofuku-ifed candy-bar monstrosity. Flavors are blissfully stuck in a classic mode, for the most part: Key lime is served with old-fashioned citrus slices and an ornamental crown of cream florets; rhubarb gets dispatched into a custard base, and plums are cooked down with rose hips. The paired-off ingredients have a wholesome prewar charm, which probably has something to do with the owner’s cache of recipes inherited from her grandmother. The oaty pear-ginger crisp is always on point, and sugar and fruit juices combine to form a dark syrup that spouts from under the crust at the height of blackberry-apricot season. In fancy kitchens, that glazelike eruption may be considered unsightly; here, it’s a wonderful point of pride, as it should be.
