While not an official Galentine’s Day event, The Glass Knife has a handful of Valentine’s Day-themed desserts worth mentioning. Round up your crew and stop in to try one of the specialties. We’re loving the Strawberry Cheesecake Heart plated dessert + champagne pairing available for $16. The dessert is a light, cheesecake mousse filled with lemon curd and house-made strawberry mousse on a strawberry cake base. it’s coated with white chocolate glacage, garnished with a white chocolate feather and dried rose petal, and finished with a strawberry sauce, rich chocolate creameaux, chocolate powder and tangy lemon curd. Yum!!
