Like so many of its other fans, we were dismayed when The Dessert Truck was shut down due to permit issues. We loved their creative restaurant-quality desserts.
So we were really excited when we saw their tweet this past weekend saying that they just opened up a new store. Their bricks-and-mortar store, DT Works, opened up last Friday and features the original truck's dessert menu.
The padded seat backs looked sleek and modern - We loved that we could roll the seats along the wall track.
Warm Molten Chocolate Cake ($6) with olive oil, hazelnuts, ganache, and vanilla bean ice cream. This was incredibly rich with a gooey chocolate interior and crunchy hazelnuts.
Warm Chocolate Bread Pudding with Bacon Custard Sauce ($6): The bread pudding was so warm and comforting, though we wished there was more of a salty bacon taste in the custard.
Though we miss the mobile truck, the stand-alone store is a great spot to sit and chat with friends. It also takes credit cards, making it easier to try everything on the menu!
DT Works is located at 6 Clinton St (btwn E Houston St and Stanton St) in NYC.
