Best Dish Like Grandma Used to Make

Banoffee Pie at Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill


The Banoffee Pie at Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill doesn’t always look traditional: Sometimes it’s a familiar slice with layers of homemade whipped cream, custardy toffee and bananas; sometimes it’s an individual short-crust tartlet swathed with dulce de leche under banana cream, caramelized banana slices and topped with a quenelle of fresh whipped cream. But, with eyes closed, even a fanciful play on this British export delivers bites of pure nostalgia.

$10, in MGM Grand, 891-3000.
