1. Spot Dessert Bar 13 St Marks, New York, NY 10003 (East Village)

Dessert is the main course at Spot, where Asian-inflected confections are treated like culinary works of art. Chocolate lava cake gets an update with green tea ganache filling, while cast-iron monkey bread is drizzled with coconut crumble and basil seeds. Bizarre but delicious desserts round out the menu, like a potted plant that looks virtually indistinguishable from its verdant inspiration. Layers of soft cheesecake, berries, meringue kisses, raspberry sorbet, and black rose milk tea fill a small clay pot, which is topped off with cookie crumble "dirt" and a green sprig. The signature order fits right in with the dining room's decor, complete with wood plank walls and mossy green carpeting.
