Ooooh soo true!! He does make the best desserts! I especially like the chocolate napoleon ( I think thats what it was called) with the fresh home-made banana ice cream. YUM!! Good pastry chefs are few and far between in Miami. Charles is excellent. Thanks for recognizing that.
Best Desserts Miami 2007 - Acqua - CLOSED
Readers' Choice: Cheesecake Factory
Since becoming executive chef of the Four Seasons Hotel last year, Patrick Duff has taken the haute Asian and Latin-accented fare of its signature restaurant, Acqua, soaring to new heights. Too often desserts can crash land such high-flying meals, but pastry chef Charles Froke keeps diners' spirits up by way of heavenly treats like Valrhona chocolate-hazelnut dome with caramel-créme brûlée center and dulce de leche gelato; honeybell orange custard; warm banana-bittersweet chocolate tart; and fantastic French macaroons one of a number of mini desserts offered at lunch for $4 each (dinner desserts are $9). Although any of these pastries will assure a smooth landing from your first-class gastronomic flight, coming down from the sugar rush might take a bit longer. Not to worry a savory finale is available via an assortment of artisanal cheeses such as Tomme de Boudenne and Mt. Tam. You may now loosen your seat belts.
