The Best Thing We Ate Last Night: Caramel Tart at GT Fish & Oyster

At every meal there is a deciding moment, the moment everyone knows is coming as dinner draws to a close. No, not splitting the check, but when the server arrives at the table to ask, “Would you like to see a dessert menu?” Usually, this question is followed by a complacent, “Sure, we’ll just take a peek.” But at GT Fish & Oyster the proper response is, “[Expletive] yes!”

Pastry chef Sarah Jordan works magic with sugar that can be enjoyed on the brunch, lunch or dinner menu. Last night, while dining in the newly completed “Whale Room,” a private dining room with nautical touches located behind a freezer door in the basement, we finished our meal with a salted caramel tart. It was filled with a gooey salted caramel filling that was topped with bananas foster and chantilly cream. This perfect marriage of salty and sweet was decorated with chocolate sauce and devoured shortly after it hit the table (312-929-3501).
