Filings and Emulsions

Adalberto Diaz is on a mission to take the city’s dessert scene into new territory. He has developed a pastry menu that combines tropical and Latin flavors with his classic French culinary training. The result: gorgeous individual cheesecakes and tarts that surprise and delight the tastebuds. The big deal for me, though, is the cruffin—a mufffin-croissant hybrid. Available in four different flavors, this hybrid pastry is the perfect example of the emerging food scene we’re starting to see in the city.
