VINVIN’s “World’s Tiniest Dessert Menu” solves the problem of not having enough room for sweets at the end of your meal. Not only does “tiny” describe the menu, which is roughly passport-sized, but it also describes the desserts themselves, which come out in whimsically decorated two- or three-bite portions that cost $2 each. We love the crème brulée— coconut, vanilla or blackberry— served in a porcelain dish the width of a half-dollar. The warmed melted apple crisp— based on a recipe from chef Chris Paternotte’s mom— is four bites of apple-y, cinnamon-y heaven, topped with a spoonful of cardamom ice cream. “We had two ideas with the desserts,” says Paternotte. “We wanted it so a customer could order one just as a taste of something sweet after a meal. And we also hoped people would order several to sample.” Bottom line: the best way to order dessert at VIN is the way to order tapas. Get a few to share. —Laura Wexler
