Best Cheesecake Lollipops - 2006
Lime - CLOSED
This small plates restaurant in the Castro District has a weird, 1950s diner-meets-futuristic Barney on acid vibe, but don't let that scare you away. Saddle up to the bar (which has embedded television screens) and start ordering. The dinner menu has a lot going for it, including some delicious minihamburgers, but do not miss those cheesecake lollipops. Alternating between dark and white chocolate, they shoot up from the plate like sprouts from soil, scattered with raspberries and dusted with cocoa powder in between. It's like when mom brought you to the bank and you got a free lolly, except instead of a fruity taste you get chocolate, with cold, tart cheesecake inside. Big-name local caterer Paula LeDuc has her own cheesecake lollipop recipe, but for those who just want to pop into a restaurant and pick up a batch, Lime is the place to go.
