5 of the best new desserts on independent restaurant menus across the country

Selected by Restaurant Hospitality editors, these dishes make a good ending

Desserts are the sweet treat to end a meal – and we’ve compiled five of the best new desserts on menus across the country here.

Desserts are not only a way to end the meal but another way to increase

Earlier this year, we asked readers to submit their best new menu item. For this list, we focused on desserts representing certain culinary trends and standout flavors.

Winners this year included a campfire spin on a baked Alaska, a homey apple pie, a sweet carrot cake, bread pudding and a show-stopping presentation.

Last month, we put the spotlight on Best New Menu Entrees and this month we compiled the Best New Appetizers.

Here’s a look at the five best new desserts on independent restaurant menus, submitted by readers and selected by Restaurant Hospitality’s editorial team.
