Like any food fetish, New York has plenty of spots to work out every inch of a serious hunger craving. But when it comes to tiramisu, look no further than recently opened Dolce Vizio (131 Christopher St., 646-669-7432) in the heart of the West Village. Touted as the city's first and only tiramisu bar, this Italian pick-me-up destination packs a sweet and authentic punch.
After tasting a particularly great piece of tiramisu in Rome, owners Alessandro Radici and Nadia Tadé felt inspired to re-create Italy's most popular dessert for everyone to enjoy. Tiramisu world domination? Sure, something like that. Once the plan was hatched to spread the tiramisu love, it was only time before the duo hit New York City with a sweet treat vengeance. Along the way, Michelin star chef Fabrizio Ferrari shared his personal tiramisu recipe with Radici and Tadé, taught them his tiramisu-making tips and tricks, and by August, Dolce Vizio had opened up its doors to city dwellin' sweet tooths. Yesterday, I stopped into the light and airy café for a latte and what else? A healthy helping of tiramisu. Click through to see how Tadé makes the classic treat.
