So, it’s not the sexiest dessert on the planet, but boy, is it good. The sticky toffee pudding at Dorchester's Ashmont Grill encompasses everything we remember about our first bite of the English speciality in the Lake District. Moist, warm dense cake complemented by the addictive caramel-richness of the toffee, and a cool smattering of whipped cream to bring it all together. Now is the perfect time to indulge ($7; 617-825-4300). Oh, and if you didn’t know, it’s so good it's been featured on the Food Network's Sugar High.
