    We guarantee you won't see desserts like these anywhere else. Try the sea buckthorn parfait, in which a sour berry puree is layered with cream, rosewater and orange blossom jellies, and meringue, and topped with a crushed almond praline.

    At a restaurant with impeccable presentation, the grapefruit givre takes the cake, so to speak. It's a sorbet-filled grapefruit with fresh grapefruit, grapefruit marmalade, rose-flavored Turkish delight, and sesame halvah, and you have to see it to believe it.
