I have had this dessert here. It is the best, and I have tried in many places across the country [NYC, SF, Houston, Chicago] and in Italy itself. It is sad to say that the public can no longer get it since the place closed in late 2008. Hopefully Chef Gurvey [whose receipe it is that won Olea the title] will find a place sometime in the near future in which to serve his wonderful concoction.

Now that's dessert: The soft, sodden cake easily releases its layers of coffee, marsala, rich mascarpone and chocolate, the flavors radiating outward from the spongy texture like bicycle spokes, reassembling in the mouth, dressing and undressing all the way down. The best? We dare you to find a better one—and then please tell us about it.
