Dyer’s new pastry shop Dessert Menu held its first “Dessert Flight” night, themed fall harvest, on Sept. 21. The flight centered around three concepts: pastry art, visual art and musical art. The night was a complete success in all three areas.
For a mere $20, patrons received three delectable dessert courses, cider spiked with cognac and rum, three tasty appetizers and spiced coffee to finish. Each piece of the meal was visually stunning, and a relaxing mood was set by acoustic guitarist Marco Villareal’s tunes.
The small venue was full of people ready to eat and enjoy their evenings at 7 p.m. when the meat and cheese tray was served next to a fall harvest cake created by cake artist Leda Miranda. At first glance no one would even know it was a cake.
The servers for the night were more than accommodating, and Dessert Menu’s owner Renee Wilson, who studied at the French Pastry School in Chicago, introduced each course. She was sure to be clear that this was a special night for Dessert Menu, and that their normal menu was not as fancy, but just as delicious. Dessert Menu offers scones, cupcakes, brownies, croissants, cakes and much more on a daily basis.
“Dessert Flight” will be a recurring special event for Dessert Menu. This event should not be missed.
Dessert Menu is located at 1950 Hart Street in Dyer, Ind.
