Dessert Happy Hour at Art & Soul Restaurant

On October 10th, a group of bloggers got together for the monthly dessert happy hour- this time it was at Art & Soul restaurant in DC!  Once again a great group of ladies met up: 

We all split the following desserts:

Seasonal fruit cobbler with vanilla bean ice cream

Chocolate pecan tart with pecan caramel, manjari ganache, bourbon whipped cream

Rosemary scented pavlova with lemon curd, crème fraiche, local berries

Sweet potato-ricotta beignets with bourbon chocolate sauce, spiced anglaise


Art & Soul Babycakes 
(I believe there was a carrot cake, white chocolate cake, and a chocolate tart in the bunch?)

It was a great night of catching up with some lovely ladies and trying out the delicious Art & Soul dessert menu.  My favorite was definitely the piping hot beignets with the pecan tart coming in a close second!

  1. I've tried the first 3 desserts during my lunch at Art & Soul last weeke. The pecan one was by far my favorite, although I think the cobbler would be perfect for breakfast.

    Not a fan of rosemary, especially in desserts, and thought the lemon curd was too sweet.

    Sorry to miss hanging out w/you and the other girls.

  2. That chocolate pecan tart was amazing--definitely my favorite! Can't wait til next month.

  3. OMG - the Sweet potato-ricotta beignets look AMAZING!

  4. @KandS: It was great!

    @Olga: Glad you liked the pecan one too!

    @dcforme: Looking forward to it too!

    @Shannon: They were REALLY good
