The real treat came at the end of the meal, when it was time for dessert. The four of us were so uncomfortably full that we opted to try just one dessert, the famed apple cake. Minutes after ordering, I observed as a server approached us with what looked to be a chocolate molten cake topped with a lit candle. What a nice gesture for the birthday girl! Before the meal even began I had been forbidden to sing happy birthday, so I therefore drew the group’s attention to the approaching dessert by abruptly shouting HAPPY BIRTHDAY repeatedly. The dessert was placed before Natasha and I silently lamented that it was chocolate, for that is strangely the only food in this world that I do not like. Imagine my immense surprise and joy to find out that it was actually not chocolate but instead a heavily toffee bundt cake with ginger ice cream! That was not all, immediately following this dessert came four more servers, each bearing a platter with another dessert from the Menu. All in all, we were presented with every single dessert served at The Dutch. My eyes nearly popped out of my head at the sight and I really could not believe the amazing hospitality and treatment that we were shown. I don’t think I could have hoped for a better birthday celebration for my friend, or for a more enjoyable last night in New York City before embarking upon my travels the very next day.
