Tarallucci e vino has great plated desserts

Cemoso - goat cheese mousse, basil, red fruits, balsamic reduction

People on the upper west side were excited to hear that Tarallucci E Vino was opening one of their wine bars here.  I had never been to any of their locations so I didn’t know what all the fuss was about.  However, I was intrigued when I saw their fresh baked goods on display.  Every morning they sell brioches, pastry, pan au chocolats and other items which are really excellent.  In fact, except for Joe and Art of Coffee which sells Ceci Cela croissants, Tarallucci offers the best breakfast pastry in the neighborhood.

Gianduiotto - warn gianduja souffle, chesnut gelato, coffee granita

Plated desserts:

When I see “souffle” on a menu  I always order it–even if it usually means a longer wait.  If they offer a chocolate souffle–even better.  Tarallucci has a warm gianduja souffle it calls a “Gianduiotto”.  It’s served with chesnut gelato and coffee granita.  This souffle was really a cross between a molten chocolate cake and classic souffle.  It was served hot .  The souffle had a slight crust on top which I really liked.  The chocolate inside was dark  but not super bitter.  The chesnut gelato was house-made and excellent as well.

Cemoso - goat cheese mousse, basil, red fruits, balsamic reduction

The second dish we ordered was called  “Cemeso” and it consisted of goat cheese mousse in the form of small buttons, basil, red fruits, raspberry sorbet and a balsamic reduction.  The goat cheese mousse was really interesting.  I imagined that lightly sweetened goat cheese would taste like this dessert if it was whipped with air and then shaped.  There was a nice selection of fruit pieces to go along with it and the raspberry sorbet was excellent (again house made).

Recommended: “Gianduiotto” and “Cemeso”

Tarallucci E Vino has 4 locations in New York City.  The upper west side location is on 775 Columbus Ave (83 St.)  Their website is here.
