Strawberries and cream sorbet to go with the delicious bread pudding

I already wrote about the savory dishes at 508 a few months ago (read that post here).  On Saturday I returned with 3 companions and after another delicious savory meal we sampled a few desserts.   My favorite is still the churros with Valhrona dark chocolate sauce but I also liked the dark chocolate brownie and the new bread pudding which is made with parts of chocolate cake mixed in with the bread.

The dark chocolate brownie - not too sweet and very chocolatey

The good thing about the 508  chocolate brownie is that it’s more like a slice of dark chocolate cake.  It’s not too sweet and has a great dark chocolate flavor.  It comes with a scoop of Capo Giro gelato in this case vanilla bean.  You really can’t go wrong.

Recommended: Dark chocolate brownie, Churros with Valhrona dark chocolate dipping sauce and the Capo Giro gelatos such as the goat’s milk rosemary honey or mexican chocolate or whatever the specialty flavor is the night you’re there.
