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'tr 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 night cap, 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 10 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.
