Salted Caramel Budino at D.O.C.G.

We mourned when the gloriously talented Vita Shanley took treats such as baci di dama-little chocolate filled hazelnut confections-off her cookie plate.

She has atoned for it with this creation: silken vanilla cream topped with a thick layer of buttery caramel, expertly balanced by a sprinkle of sea salt to tease even the most jaded palate.

Nachos, Diablo’s Cantina

A tequila temple such as Diablo’s is bound to have stellar nachos. This open-air, Strip-side bar piles its nachos high into a perfect mound of tortilla chips carefully stacked with various cheeses, pico de gallo and sour cream. Don’t forget to add spicy rotisserie chicken shredded on top, and for extra devilishness, there’s Diablo’s signature salsa to fuel the flames. $16, in Monte Carlo, 730-7979.
