While many people are beginning New Year’s resolutions to eat healthier, another popular goal people wish to achieve is to travel more– get out there and see more places. New York City is a tourist hub and generally makes it to the top of the list for cities to visit. The Big Apple holds wonderful things from historical sites to some of the best shopping in the world. But what really draws people in are the many unique restaurants with food you won’t find anywhere else. If you’re looking for the best dessert places in NYC to put on your 2018 bucket list, you’ve come to the right place.

Take a dip into SoHo’s luxuriously old-school french restaurant. Toasted meringue and roasted cherries are only two of the delicious ingredients in Le Coucou’s best dessert on the menu. Showcasing a new way to do baked Alaska, you’ll have to stop in to try the omelette Norvegienne. While we call this mini cake a “baked Alaska”, the French call it literally a Norwegian omelette. Another ingredient that makes this dessert one of a kind is pure pistachio paste. Le Coucou brings French desserts to a new level in NYC.
