OMG Foodie Recommends:
Summertime in the City? More like Dessert-Time in the City
It’s summer in New York City.
You know how I know? I’ll give you a list:
1. I woke up sweating.
2. The streets have started becoming clothing optional, or at least outer-garment optional.
3. People say things now like, “You won’t believe what I did last weekend in the Hamptons.”
4. There is an unspoken contest amongst all residents to try and outdo one another with how hot they are.
5. All you want to eat are cold or sweet things. (This may just be a Kate thing but whatever)
Well, I can’t help you with the first four except to say that I hope you’re financially secure enough to afford the spike in your electric bill caused by your air conditioner (I also hope you even have one of those….) but I can help you with that last one.
As pastry chef and cofounder Jerome Chang puts it, it was time to rebrand, retire the truck, and refocus, all without losing the core things that draws customers
Let me introduce you to Cathcart and Reddy. Most of you are probably familiar with DessertTuck that used to roll around the city serving up great desserts but now it’s known for the café that calls 6 Clinton Street home. Now don’t fret, they still have the same sweet delicacies that you’ve always loved, now there’s just more of them!

And at that core is the food.
Always a favorite is the warm chocolate bread pudding with either vanilla crème en glace or bacon crème en glace, which coincidently also won a throwdown with Food Network Iron Chef, Bobby Flay. Another treat is the molten chocolate cake, which is the richest, chocolate-y dessert they offer. Or, if you’re in the mood for something that won’t give you a sugar rush, you could also try the smoked turkey or grilled cheese sandwiches.

Chang emphasizes that he just wants diners to be floored by the food. So come during the day, when it’s not as busy and try something sweet. Perhaps you’ll find me there, drowning myself in their frozen hot chocolate before I stomp home to my humid apartment. Or maybe you'll just find a nice escape, an oasis from the heat, in a dessert that makes you go "Oh My God."
