Sure, there’s great pizza and Italian American fare at Chazz: A Bronx Original, but you might be interested in the desserts, too. The restaurant has introduced several new desserts that speak to the holiday season:
—Cinnamon-spiked, vanilla-iced bread pudding, pictured top left, with whiskey crème Anglaise and salted caramel.
—Spiced pumpkin layer cake with cream cheese frosting.
—Warm molten chocolate lava cake, served with vanilla gelato.
—Butterscotch budino (Italian pudding), pictured, with sweetened mascarpone and salted almond-cashew brittle.
—Zabaglione (Marsala Italian egg custard), layered with Italian cream cake and balsamic strawberries.
—Lemon-honey ricotta cheesecake.
