Resident Foodies say: Every so often we encounter a dish that is so other worldly, that it leaves an indelible taste in our mouths that will last our lifetime. The Baked Alaska dessert at Bistronomic in Chicago is one such dish. Made with vanilla bean ice cream, caramelized almonds, topped with a delightful coating of toasted meringue, perfectly cooked, the Baked Alaska is so goo-ily delicious it is almost obscene. The dessert is served in a generous portion that can easily be shared by several people–or, if one desires, be devoured by oneself. It’s one of the best desserts we’ve had in a long while.
