Categories include 50 Favorite Appetizers; Sandwiches, Soups & Salads, Entrees, Desserts, and All Time Favorites, which are tried and true, memorable dishes that are repeat favorites for many years. This year's dessert winners are as follows.
Fleming's Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar: Chocolate Lava Cake is an individual rich chocolate cakes with a molten chocolate center of Belgian chocolate, served with vanilla ice cream and chopped pistachios.
Golden Rule BBQ: A creamy bowl of Banana Pudding cools the palate after barbecue. Ripe bananas, wafers and real vanilla make an irresistible, sweet end to each meal here.
Lloyd's Restaurant: Don't miss the Blueberry Cheesecake at Lloyd's. This creamy, cold and blueberry filled dessert makes the perfect end to a meal at Lloyd's.
Ted's Restaurant: The Peach Cobbler is chock full of peach slices and is topped with a crisp, golden and sweet crust. The crust and fruit meld together in each scrumptious bite. Just like your grandmother's cobbler!
The Wine Loft: Apple Turnover is a special recipe of apple filling baked in a puff pastry. It is served with ice cream and drizzled with ruby port reduction. Pair with a dessert wine!
The Melting Pot: Flaming Turtle combines milk chocolate, caramel and candied pecans flambéed table side. And for our dipping pleasure are fresh strawberries, bananas, cheesecake, Rice Krispies Treats®, marshmallows, pound cake and brownies. Pair with Rose Regale Sparkling Wine. Red in color with notes of strawberry and raspberry and a light and refreshing effervescence make this semi sweet sparkler a perfect match for hot, nutty chocolate.
