Pastry chef Saeko Nemoto has one of the most interesting menus at the fine-dining Cafe Boulud located in Yorkville's Four Seasons Hotel. Much like the rest of the menu, Nemoto's creations are divided into four categories: Le Potager (focusing on fruit), Le Voyage (Internationally influenced), La Tradition (a take on French classics) and La Saison (seasonally driven ingredients). One of the highlights of Nemoto's menu is the beautiful grapefruit givre dessert. The spectacle of a dessert is a hollowed-out grapefruit that arrives to the table on a bed of ice, stuffed with chunks of frozen grapefruit, and a sesame crumble, rose-flavoured Turkish delight and grapefruit sorbet. Finish off with a basket of freshly baked madeleines and a glass of scotch.
