Tag Archives: Steve’s Key Lime Pies

For the fourth year in a row, I present the 100 most exciting dishes I’ve consumed during my food adventures around the five boroughs. Look for another five dishes every few days.

I joke with my tour attendees that there is a separate stomach for dessert. While doctors might disagree with me, I feel like something like that must be true. Because no matter how much I gorge myself at dinner (or lunch), there truly is always room for dessert. And here are five sweet dishes worth splurging on, whether there’s room or not.

NUMBER 30: CHOCOLATE SOUFFLE at CHEZ NAPOLÉON

Chcocolate Souffle at CHEZ NAPOLÉON

I don’t really like committing to things in advance. That’s why I’ve never been one for making reservations. But if I want to try a chocolate souffle at a restaurant, I usually have to place the order with my entrée. At the classic French restaurant Chez Napoléon, it can take up to an hour to get the souffle right. And when it comes out, it’s more than right – it’s perfect. The soft fluffy skin is just like chocolate air with a rich chocolatey goodness inside (decadent chocolate sauce was poured in the souffle tableside). If I could, I’d put an order in for one of these at every meal. Price: $20

Some people know that there is a place on the Brooklyn waterfront selling authentic key lime pies. On paper it sounds absurd, but the ambiance and taste of Steve’s Key Lime Pies truly transport you to the Florida keys.

Those people that do know that Steve is squeezing fresh key lime juice for his pies, probably also know about his swingles. What the heck is a swingle you might ask? It’s a mini-key lime pie on a stick, dipped in chocolate and frozen. Sounds pretty amazing, right? Steve didn’t invent the idea of a swingle, but he certainly perfected it.
