Best Desserts New York 2013 - Butter & Scotch
What do you get when you mix two bakers with beloved Brooklyn businesses and an affinity for the hard stuff? Marty Markowitz and the rest of his borough will soon find out with the opening of Butter & Scotch, a forthcoming bakery and cocktail bar from Kumquat Cupcakery's Keavy Landreth and Allison Kave, formerly of First Prize Pies. For now, you can find the charming crew doling out pies and pie-studded milkshakes at Smorgasburg in Williamsburg and the Smorgasburg food court in Whole Foods Bowery. S'mores pie with coffee ice cream is a favorite. But for a true taste of what's to come, head to Ward III in Tribeca for its Sunday "Beggars Banquet" and order a slice of Negroni Pie featuring gin-spiked Campari custard, vermouth whipped cream, and a shot of Negroni on the side.
