Just the Sweet Menu, Please: Top 5 Houston Restaurants to Visit Just for Dessert
I think we've all been there before, that moment where we're done with dinner and we're not quite ready to go home or maybe dinner was great but the dessert menu just didn't speak to you. This happens to me quite a bit, and there is something about the festive mood of the holidays that makes me want to extend the evening and use it as the perfect opportunity to visit not just one great restaurant but a couple of them. Sure, there are places you can go just for a nightcap, a last glass of wine or a cup of coffee, but I love going to a full-service restaurant where I can cozy up to the bar or take a corner table and order dessert and nothing else. Let's be clear, though -- don't be that guy and show up ten minutes before they close or come right during dinner and take up a table just for dessert. Here's my top five places well worth a visit for their dessert menus alone.

5. The Melting Pot -- It may seem like I'm trying really hard to bring fondue back, but this is actually an ideal spot just for dessert. Mainly because it is expected and no one will be upset if you take a table strictly for the melted chocolate goodness. Go with the original if you just want pure chocolate; the chocolate s'mores is perfect for this time of year, or have your dessert and nightcap in one by adding Baileys or Grand Marnier.
