I booked Glass Brasserie for Sugar Hit very early. It was one of the definite go-to places on my list this October. Again, we had dinner at a Japanese restaurant. Something about Japanese just makes it easy to share amongst a large group. I can’t explain it.
In any case, the target this week was well anticipated. I’ve been meaning to go to Glass for lunch or dinner, but regrettably never have gotten around to it. The advertised Milk chocolate bavarois, tonka bean creme brulee, caramel sorbet and salted beans was intriguing.
The dessert wine was served very promptly. It was light, delicate and sweet, and described only as a “Patricia” dessert wine. I’m not certain if it was a Brown Brothers wine as our waitress was a woman of few words and did not elaborate further.
Dessert itself followed soon after. The tonka bean creme brulee lived up to its name, tasting quite creamy. The peanuts sprinkled on top added to the overall texture. The caramel sorbet was sweet and salty. It really was perfectly balanced.
Overall nothing negative about the dessert itself. I have to comment that my group felt a bit rushed by our server (read: we were given the bill without even asking AND whilst members of our party were still enjoying their wine). I admit I was intrigued by the other dishes that came out from the kitchen and onto the tables surrounding. I’d gladly return to sample some in the near future, sans the sour service.
