After having tried Lady M at Bryant Park several weeks ago, as well as the one in the Plaza Hotel, we decided to go on the Upper East Side, thinking that, as it is their original location, it would be bigger and would have more choices.
I admit that I was a bit disappointed as it was the same size as the other one and the same menu, but my disappointment did not last too long at the sight of these spectacular cakes that they showcase.
I was there fixated on one and one only cake: the Mont Blanc!
When you start digging in, you are wondering where the cream is.
But then you find it and you are happy about it, because it cuts on the sweetness of the chestnut cream; because yes, it is very sweet. But very addictive too, to the point that I finished it...
Jodi was set for the vanilla mille-crepe, but finally decided to order the banana mille feuilles:
It is made of big chunks of banana, puff pastry, whipped cream and layers of sponge cake. This was sublime! It reminded me of a banana cream pie in a way.
These desserts were perfect with my double espresso. Jodi ordered a tea that was good, but pricey ($8)!
The more I try Lady M, the more I like this place and I can tell you that it was not my last visit!
Enjoy (I did)!
