om the Apple Cheesecake at Blue Hill to the Honeycrisp-layered Mille-Feuille at The Elm in Brooklyn, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite apple desserts, boasting the delicious versatility of the beloved fall fruit!
Our favorite cold weather treat, however, is their Caramel Apple Bread Pudding, a Crème Brulee and Custard-soaked Brioche layered with Caramelized Apples and served with a warm Caramel Rum Raisin Sauce. Died and gone to apple heaven.

Buttermilk Channel is one of our go-to spots in Brooklyn for refined American comfort foods, including their now infamous Fried Chicken with Cheddar Waffles, Duck Meatloaf with Onion Rings and Parsnip Mash, and a classic warm Dutch Apple Pie.
Finish with a Caramel Apple accompanied by Milk Chocolate Caramel Custard, Peanut Butter Popcorn Brittle, Cranberry Sorbet and Puff Pastry – a decidedly grown up take on one of our favorite childhood treats!
Technically, the Popcorn Mille-feuille, a Napoleon-style pastry served with Honeycrisp Apple and Caramel Popcorn is also meant for sharing, but we won’t pass judgment if you’d just as soon keep it for yourself. We certainly would.
Think Pumpkin Agnolotti with Brown Butter, Sage and Aged Balsamic, Roasted Diver Scallops with Sicilian Cauliflower, Pine Nuts and Capers, followed by a rustic Apple Crostata with Apple Cider Caramel and Brown Butter Gelato for dessert.
Since it’s apple season, you’ll want to follow up your meal of Pastured Chicken with foraged Shitake Mushrooms with a wedge of Apple Cheesecake served with Toasted Almond Ice Cream, or Apple Compote topped with Corn Crumble and Buttermilk Sorbet.
Our list of favorite bites is too long to share here (alright, we’re nuts for the Squid & Farm Egg A La Plancha), but whatever you start with, make sure to end your meal with the Goat Yogurt Mousse with Julienned Heirloom Apples and Licorice Caramel.
