Best Homey Desserts San Francisco 2006 - Bread Pudding at Street
San Francisco, CA 94109
Any sweet delectable born in chilly Great Britain and brought to maturity in tropical New Orleans is a dessert for all seasons, sentiments, and social strata. Bread pudding is simplicity itself: slices of day-old bread soaked in eggs, cream, and sugar and slowly baked to the moist and tender stage. Street's version takes this nourishing classic to a whole other level. Not only is its rendition richer and silkier than any other, but the fresh dates and crunchy pecans the kitchen drops into the pudding's plush interior also add marvelous textural accents. A thick, buttery caramel sauce is the crowning touch. This treat is best devoured at the counter with one of Street's wide array of cognacs or single-barrel bourbons.
