We enjoyed a delicious red velvet cake (as reviewed here), but we weren’t so thrilled by the chocolate cake.
5-Layer Chocolate Cake: Yep that’s right, 2 cherries for the chocolate cake. Prado’s chocolate cake reminded me of my disappointing experience at The Palm Restaurant (review here). Really, it looked like a Ferarri but had the engine of a Pinto. The cake was dry and the chocolate flavor was eerily similar to that of Hershey’s syrup from a can (yea,not even squirt bottle). It would hit your chocolate fix, but not entirely satisfy you.
Apple Tartan: now the open-faced Apple tartan was another story altogether. The large pieces of caramelized apples were very sweet to the point that they reminded us of candied fruit, but the mild vanilla ice-cream that they served perfectly balanced the sweetness of the apples. We also loved the texture of this treat.. not mushy, not crunchy, but just melt-in-your-mouth right!
Overall, our dinner was completely delicious and the desserts weren’t far off from their savory counterparts. I’d highly recommend dining at Prado if you find yourself in the Larchmont area.
