ChocolateBet: March 8, 2008

Chocolate of the Day:

1 serving
"the pate of beets and chocolate frozen arugula and port sauce"
Citizen Cake (restaurant)
Very Good
Weight: 4 oz. total (guesstimate)
Calories: 350 calories (estimate)
Cost $ 11.00 for this dessert (It was part of the most expensive meal I've had all year.)
Purchased from: Citizen Cake (restaurant) in San Francisco, CA

I thought this unusual dessert was very good -- and definitely not for everyone. A chocolate "ganache" layer was topped with a beet gelee layer, and was served with a small portion of arugula ice cream and a port sauce - that seemed to have some cherries in it. I liked it - but one of my dining companions (who is not a beet fan) did not. The menu was clever, with creative word riffs unhampered by capital letters or punctuation.

I'd like to go back to Citizen Cake for brunch, or perhaps just for dessert. They offered tempting looking sweets in their adjacent take-out patisserie/shop.

P.S. Unfortunately, Citizen Cake is now closed.
