Just Desserts


Crave Dessert Bar & LoungeThere’s something about sweet treats that sends our hearts racing. We lust over molten cake. We swoon over sorbet. We crumble for crème brule. That is precisely why we are giddy over the opening of Crave, the new dessert bar & lounge that is opening its candy-coated doors in downtown Denver’s Spire building on Monday. Brought to us by Allen Milham and Darrell Naughton, the clever crew behind Spire’s Organic Pizza Company, Crave will dish up delectable desserts, breakfast pastries, coffee and cocktails in a sleek, sexy atmosphere that’s just as suitable for a latte and the paper as it is for a first date and a drink. Creative concoctions like a flourless chocolate cake with milk chocolate peanut butter mousse and salted caramel ice cream (lust) and Medjool Date Sticky Toffee Pudding (swoon) appoint the swanky menu, along with one-of-a-kind cocktails like “Sunset at the Spire,” Prosecco, Lavender Syrup, Lillet Blanc and a Blackberry Ice Cube (crumble). Crave Dessert Bar & Lounge, open seven days a week, ground floor of the Spire building, 14th & Champa in Denver, Ring: 303.586.4199, www.cravedenver.com or http://www.facebook.com/CraveBarDenver.
