Chef Marcus Glocker's intricate fare at Tribeca eatery Bâtard has been earning critical acclaim and among the signature dishes, a seemingly simple dessert has cropped up as an early favorite: his caramelized milk bread with brown butter ice cream and berries. Almost like a crème brûlée French toast, the bread is coated with the caramelized sugar, the intense sweetness mellowed out by a surprisingly savory brown butter ice cream. The sugar coating has a crunchy bite which foils the tender interior, creating a unique texture that's made the dessert a hit at the three-month-old restaurant.
