It’s so much fun to have dessert before dinner! Tonight I was in good company at Craftbar with some of my best high school and undergrad friends. We started off the night by ordering every dessert on the menu — I’m a big fan of Pastry Chef Abby Swain, who creates amazing desserts for both Craft and Craftbar. My absolute favorite was the PB & J Sundae — it was incredible! After a couple of hours of enjoying wine and desserts, we moved to the dining room where we sat down for a proper meal. All of those sweet got me craving something savory! The fried chicken and the veal ricotta meatballs with capellini satisfied those cravings and then some. YUM! We couldn’t resist ordering one more dessert at the end of the night — naturally, it was the PB & J Sundae. We had to bring it back for round two because it was THAT GOOD. Thanks to all of my awesome friends who came out to celebrate with me. Love you ladies!
