Gobs of Cobs

You’d think that we lived in Nebraska, judging by the corn-crazed menus currently on display.

  1. 1. OTTO Enoteca Pizzeria

    1 Fifth Ave., at 8th St.; 212-995-9559

    No one pushes the seasonal-gelato envelope like pastry chef Meredith Kurtzman, as evidenced by her sweet-corn gelato with blueberry compote, nectarine sorbetto, and polenta cake.

  2. 2. P*ONG

    150 W. 10th St., nr. Waverly Pl.; 212-929-0898

    The five-course, $59 corn tasting menu starts with a corn-cachaça-and-condensed-milk cocktail and finishes on an equally sweet note with a Jersey-bicolor-corn flan.

  3. 3. Shake Shack

    At Madison Square Park; 212-889-6600

    Every Wednesday in August is Sweet Corn Custard Day.

  4. 4. Klee Brasserie

    200 Ninth Ave., nr. 22nd St.; 212-633-8033

    You’ve got to love a chef who gives a vegetable top billing over not one but two expensive proteins, as in the Long Island corn with king salmon and soft-shell crab.
