Also sure to please: Sant Ambroeus’ St. Honoré cake, which, named after the patron saint of bakers and pastry chefs, features puff pastry, páte à choux, pastry cream, whipped cream and more.
“Introducing our Palm Beach guests to some of the sweets that I experienced as a child is always fun for me,” said Sant Ambroeus’ executive chef Marco Barbisotti. “Easter is one of my favorite times to showcase the traditions and flavors of Italy alongside the fresh ingredients found here in Florida.”
Renato’s, 87 Via Mizner, is set to serve on Easter a traditional dessert revered in Italy: pastiera napoletana, a creation slightly similar to American cheesecake.
With a mild perfume and taste of orange
— and an overall flavor-and-texture profile fans have called “addictive” — pastiera napoletana with various ingredients including ricotta and orange will be featured among dessert selections on Renato’s special lunch and dinner Easter menus Sunday.
Elsewhere on the island, Café L’Europe, among other places, will offer on Easter somewhat of a rarity in restaurants today: the dessert soufflé, which by its very delicate nature captures a certain sense of drama.
Café L’Europe, 331 S. County Road, will feature made-to-order chocolate soufflés, which should be requested when your entrée order is placed.
Chocolate soufflés will be among the desserts Café L’Europe offers Sunday as part of a special a la carte Easter dinner menu.
“Our soufflés literally ‘rise’ to any occasion, especially on Easter, when everything feels light and fresh,” said Bruce Strickland, Café L’Europe’s general manager. “Chocolate soufflés are a way to treat yourself no matter what your age.”
And we all deserve a special treat.”
