There aren't many places in New York where you can find baked Alaska, much less one that alone, can justify (many) returns. Enter DBGB where the Baked Alaska ($18, serves 2-3 people) changes with the season. They did a vanilla, raspberry and verbena ice cream combo when they first opened, and now it's offered with all the elements of a traditional black forest cake. Almond cake soaked in housemade cherry syrup serves as the base. It's topped with layers of vanilla and chocolate ice cream as well as a sour cherry sorbet. A billowy top of meringue seals everything in, and then comes the fun part: a generous pour of kirsch, and wooosh flambé! Tableside, of course.
