Olivea Denver

After a delightful lite dinner of appetizers at Olivea in Denver (obviously, I was saving room for the main course – dessert), I was pleasantly surprised with a table FULL of desserts.  Each bite topping the other.  I had the most difficult time choosing just one to write about, but I lucked out.  Since the menu changed the day after I visited, it left me with Pastry Chef, Yasmin Lozada-Hissom’s, GENIUS Chocolate and Fleur de Sel Caramel Tart garnished with milk chocolate gelato and nougatine crunch… quite literally, a delicious mouthful.

Even though the menu changed, this little tart stays.  I do a really sassy happy dance at the thought of devouring this again, and again, and again.

Like what you see?  Show them some sugar…
