Sugar and Plumm
The bistro, macaron maker, chocolatier, ice cream parlour, bakery, and candy shop on the Upper West Side offers a little bit of this and a little bit of that. While Sugar and Plumm’s Chef Ben Dodaro serves comfort food like 72-hour pulled pork sandwiches between waffles and topped with pickled slaw, it’s the desserts like sweet crepes, waffles, sundaes, and handmade chocolates by Thierry Atlan that are the main event. Try the cajeta caramel crepe topped with goats’ milk caramel and dulce de leche ice cream or, for the indecisive, the Earthquake in a Fishbowl, a shareable dessert for the indecisive with chocolate caramel cake, key lime pie, Brooklyn blackout cake, New York cheesecake, butterscotch pudding, and vanilla, chocolate, and dulce de leche ice cream topped with whipped cream. An outpost in the West Village also offers a smaller menu of dessert delights.
