I ordered a Seasonal Bellini, which had prosecco and a pear-cardamom puree. It was light and refreshing, everything a bellini should be and more.
Joe ordered the Brooklyn 46, which is a spin on the regular Brooklyn cocktail, but uses Maker's 46, a special, new Maker's Mark.
For dessert, and brace yourself for this one, we had Olive Oil cake with olive oil gelato and caramelized pears! I was skeptical because olive oil doesn't strike me as a "sweet" ingredient, but believe me: It's worth a try.
So who's with me on my next trip to the Conservatory?
