More About

Three desserts are on offer: a polite tiramisu that's closer to a factory layer cake than the creamy, boozy, caffeine-jolted mess of many a dream; the Meyer lemon torta, a bit sugary but with a buttery crust and a tangy drizzle of zabaglione around the edges; and the Chocolate Blackout Cake, a thick slab of dense chocolate that's disappointingly chalky in texture and low in endorphins. A better bet is to head downstairs to the aforementioned Blue Chip cookie stand, where you can fill up on airy, chewy treats that not only taste like butter, vanilla, and brown sugar, but also are packed with chunks of (properly endorphic) chocolate. Close out the evening with a boilermaker at the Eagle and you've accomplished that rare and wonderful thing: a pleasant excursion to Pier 39.
