Best Far-Out Desserts 

Jefferson House; 2 Jefferson Ave., Detroit; 313-965-0200;

Young pastry chef Lindsey Barterian interned in Provence, but she gets her ideas from studying appetizers, she says. That might not be obvious when you’re forking into a “Little Napoleon” with lime curd or a “Dolce Caprese” with meringue, buttermilk panna cotta, sweet basil pesto and balsamic-infused strawberries. She’ll use liquid nitrogen to freeze out-of-the-way ingredients and, of course, a torch for the crème brûlée of the day, very eggy with a perfect crackling crust. Her desserts are a surprising $7, low in relation to the rest of the Jefferson House menu.
