Bread Pudding Is My Favorite Dessert

1/20/2009 12:01:00 AM
I love bread pudding. It really is my favorite dessert, especially with some vanilla ice cream on top. Well the Sunday Globe had a feature on their pics for the best places to get some. Visiting these three places is definitely going on my to-do list. Right next to the buffalo wings crawl (for lack of a better word) that my friends suggested we do after my entry on the best buffalo wings in New England (here).

They went to three places, the Union Bar & Grille (South End), Stephanie's (Newbury St), and Highland Kitchen (Somerville). Their choice for best bread pudding was Union Bar & Grille.

We like our bread pudding just like Chef Stephen Sherman's steaming hot maple-infused brioche version: custardy, multi-textured, and chock-full of flavor. You can really taste and smell the pure Vermont maple syrup. But the real proof of Sherman's concoction is in the pudding. The shimmering pudding comes with a scoop of in-house vanilla bean ice cream and crunchy walnut praline streusel, plus another zap of maple syrup on top for good measure. Bottom line On a cold winter's night, you'll dream about this soul-satisfying dessert.

If I recall correctly, Parish Cafe (on Boylston St) had some pretty great bread pudding as well.

    You should also try the bread pudding at Croma and Sibling Rivalry. I think Croma has the best one in town.
