The best thing I ate all week: Here's some "puddin" my spoon can get behind.

There's nothing sexy about pudding.  At least I don't think there is.  Mousse- pretty sexy. Creme Brulee with that torched sugar on top- twice as sexy.  Pudding just reminds me of Bill Cosby and the 80s.

Until now- maybe because it's actually called Budino (pudding in Italian) or maybe because everything Marcie Turney touches is so darn delightful.  Her and partner Valerie Safran have turned 13th st. in Midtown Village into Inspiration Ave. for me.  I don't know them- but they seem every bit as nice as they are talented.

So back to this Budino.  It's on the menu at the new BARBUZZO (so are cans of Sly Fox Phoenix Pale Ale). It's a Salted Caramel Budino with  Dark Chocolate Crust, Vanilla Bean Caramel and Sea Salt.  It's $8. It's served in a cute jar. And It's the best thing I ate all week.
