1. Salted Caramel Budino
Barbuzzo (address and info)
Maybe the city’s most heralded dessert, the salted caramel budino at Barbuzzo is everything you're looking for. Sweet, savory, and a bit salty (hence the name), Marcie Turney’s signature dish is almost too good to be true. Almost. With a dark chocolate crust, vanilla bean caramel, and sea salt, the dessert has won practically every award possible, and even spawned an offspring in the form of the salted caramel budino donut, which sold out during a limited release at sister property Verde.
