While dining out, our group stopped at the newly opened Swoon for dessert. We each had the fixed prix of 3 courses plus a caracara sorbet starter. All flights were an incredible and imaginative blend of flavors and textures... totally unbelievable! Swoon also offers a wide variety of top-shelf coffees and teas for pairing with dessert. The wait staff are very charming, too! I highly recommended this dining experience for the discriminating palate that enjoys being wowed.

As a special guest prior to opening night, We did not know what to expect from such a unique store. We were amazingly surprised. Ian and Evan treated us to a five course dessert extravaganza. As they continued to work on the next course they answered our questions about tastes being consummated and the very unique spices involved. They remained associated in the dialog during our entire visit. I can't imagine anyone has experienced anything like this restaurant. A bucket list experience for sure.
The neighborhood definitely adds to the experience.
