Any excuse to head to the Meatpacking district is a good one for me, and when you add delicious sweets to that, you can surely count on a big smile from ear to ear appearing on this writer’s face. sherry b dessert studio, located on Hudson Street between Horatio and Gansevoort Street, is going to become your next savory and sweet dessert addiction this spring and summer. Here’s why.
The moderately sized shop is owned by New York native Sherry Blockinger, whose cool personality and fun vibes earned her a spot on the list of the “100 People, Places or Things That Matter in 2016” by Departures. Pretty cool.
After opening her very successful bakery in the small town of Katonah, Sherry decided to enter the big leagues and open up shop here in NYC, a feat which she accomplished with sherry b dessert shop opening a week ago.
I stopped by there over the weekend to chat it up with the local culinary celebrity and try out some of what has made her so successful. What’s so great about her location is that it has some fantastic personal touches inside it and she makes everything on the menu from scratch, which changes the game in terms of getting what you deserve from a taste and price point angle.
There are so many dishes that stand out, some on the savory and some on the sweet, that are worth pointing out. Her Cacio e Pepe Clouds, which are choux puffs with whipped Parmesan goat cheese and truffle honey are a perfect bite sized savory item that melts in your mouth as the combo of honey and cheese blend incredibly well with one another.
Her Ice Cream Sandwiches are completely whimsical and Instagram worthy from the second you even look at them. The taste takes all of this to a “beyond” sort of level, as her Fluffernutter, Blackout (dark chocolate ice cream) and Birthday options are literally some of the best desserts I’ve had in a very long time.
She also has classic shakes and “shimmies” the latter of which are prepared hot. I tried a Rice Krispies shimmy, and it was so incredibly yummy and warming given how we are still experiencing a major cold front here in NYC. Overall, I had a super fun time at Sherry’s new location and I can guarantee you will as well.
