Cannoli Cupcake, Pizzeria Francesco’s

We know you just started your 2012 health kick. But if you feel like blowing it off, do it for the right reason. Like this dark chocolate- and vanilla-marbled cupcake, topped with a nest of creamy chocolate buttercream. The cupcake only gets better as it’s stuffed with a traditional cannoli filling of chocolate chip-studded sweet ricotta flavored with orange and cinnamon.

We’re back in the wacky world of Japanese cooking, this time at a kissaten, or a Japanese-style coffee shop. Chef Kiichi Okabe, formerly of Sushi Roku at the Forum Shops, decided to open one of these places, a concept I frequented in various forms as a student in Tokyo. Food here runs to Japanized Western dishes such as spaghetti, omelets, a hamburger steak like you’ve never seen before, and popular student fare ranging from Japanese curry and rice bowls to siphon-brewed coffee. Want sushi? Fat chance.
