Citizen Cake

We headed towards Citizen Cake for dessert. The chef was a contestant on Top Chef Masters recently. We walked in 30 min before closing and all the cooks in the kitchen were peering out, muttering curses under their breath as we were seated. Alison and I both ordered the chocolate cake which was served with Fleur de Sel (?), caramel, chili pepper flakes and a quenelle (oval shaped scoop) of vanilla ice cream. The cook went a little heavy handed with the salt and chili pepper which in turn overpowered the chocolate flavor of cake. Rick’s mint chocolate ice cream sandwich was equally disappointing. Nakul’s rose and pistachio creme brule was delicious according to him. I won’t be reminiscing about the awesomeness of this place anytime soon.
