Midweek Nosh: A Snack

 

This week’s food entry is a dessert … the French vanilla cheesecake at Copper Grill.

 

Copper Grill (CG) is the youngest of proprietor Mary Beth Ringgold’s trio of restaurants — the others are Capers Restaurant and Cajun’s Wharf. CG is located on the street level of 300 Third and features a cozy atmosphere that’s a great place to enjoy happy hour (Mon. through Fri., 4 to 7 p.m.).

The menu includes a number of tempting items, including the famous mac-n-cheese balls with blackberry dipping sauce. They’re a great splurge item.

CG’s dessert menu includes several “made-from-scratch desserts,” including chocolate crème brulee — a dish for which the September Create has a recipe — chocolate peanut butter pie and a chocolate bread pudding that they’re trying to force you to share. The nerve!!

French vanilla cheesecake

The French vanilla cheesecake was beautiful as well as delicious.

The French vanilla cheesecake features a ginger snap crust (I love ginger snaps), fresh berries and bourbon caramel and white chocolate sauces. I shared this slice — cannot totally cancel out those calories I burned this morning — and my dining partner and I were delighted with the cake and how sweet and fresh the berries were.
