There are people in this world who prefer savory, rich or spicy dishes. And then there are the people who have a sweet tooth the size of Manhattan. This list is for the latter among us.
Even if you're firmly in the sweet-is-better-than-savory camp, it's likely that you have major preferences over what kind of sugary treat is best, which is why New York is so fantastic. In every neighborhood from the Lower East Side to the Bronx and everywhere in between, one can find a range of dessert options at any hour of the day.
For purists looking for an upgrade, artisan ice cream parlors like Ample Hills Creamery should do the creamy, cool trick. On the other end of the spectrum, places like Dominique Ansel Bakery (home of the Cronut) are busy whipping up fancy, fusion endeavors that reign supreme the world over. Cookie shots, anyone?
No matter which you prefer - heck, you can even have both! - this list will help point you in the right direction and give you plenty of options to keep you wired for days. Call up your dentist because we have a feeling after perusing the below, you'll be over-indulging with the best of them.
