The place is called “Better Than Sex”.http://www.betterthansexkeywest.com/ With a name like that the bar has been set pretty high! It is a A dessert restaurant.That is correct. A restaurant where ALL THEY SERVE IS DESSERT! My kind of place. We entered through a candle lit doorway into a new kind of experience. Erotica adorns the ruby walls. The main room is darkened. The mood they are setting is obvious. They have two main dining areas; the red room and the gold room. We were seated at a table with a sheer curtain that can be drawn for some privacy. The menus are on tablet computers. Guests can pick drinks which are rimmed with all sorts of goodness like chocolate or caramel. Wines, coffee or beer can be rimmed with whatever you choose. You can come up with your own unique concoction. We tried the ” Kiss Me Carolyn” which is Ayala Champagne in a Caramel Brulee’d Rimmed Wine Glass. It was a perfect pairing. The champagne and caramel truly complimented each other. Everyone has to come up with their own methodology in how to drink/taste their beverage. I went with 2 sips and one lick. You come up with your own ! We also had the “Tia Ticker”, which is Piper Rose Champagne in a White Chocolate Rimmed Wine Glass .
Next up were the dessert choices…Started with the “Chocolate Grilled Cheese”…not exactly a “normal” combination of foods but it was exquisitely deliciously and uber sinful. Next up was their namesake dessert. It is their version of chocolate bread pudding with a side of white chocolate mousse. Awesome chocolate goodness that melted in my mouth. Was this dish better than sex? Only YOU can decide that. Also the “Missionary Crisp ” is not to be missed. If you like apple cobbler you will LOVE this variation.
Between the decor, vibe and the incredible drinks and desserts I left there feeling good and in the mood for _ _ _.See if you feel the same. Next time you are in Key West make sure you have something that just might be Better Than Sex. Tell em Sobesavvy.com sent ya.
