5280 Top of the Town Best Dessert (Editor's Choice) - LeRoux

“Most everything about this seven-month-old, European-inspired restaurant in LoDo feels romantic, from the sparkling crystal chandeliers to the deep, dark booths to the exquisite desserts. Led by chef-owner Lon Symensma, there’s a beautiful sensibility to the sweets menu, which transforms classics such as baked Alaska and Paris-Brest into modern marvels by tweaking their elements until the dishes feel altogether new. The Paris-Brest in particular will linger in your thoughts for weeks thanks to its craveable union of a traditional crisp choux pastry ring, a delicate pistachio crème mousseline (a riff on the typical praline cream), and a wholly au courant salty caramel sauce. While you might be tempted to clink forks with your date over one of these luxurious confections, trust us: You’re going to want your own.”
