Over at ~PROSPECT~, you’ll find a new dessert menu in place from pastry chef Sarah Wade. This Philly-raised pastry chef worked under the mentorship of Christine Law at Postrio, as well as two years as a sous pastry chef in Nancy Oakes’ kitchen at Boulevard before moving back to the East Coast to be closer to her family. After some East Coast gigs, she returned to the West Coast, and has been working at Prospect since May 2011. Her seasonally driven menu will emphasize simple and wholesome desserts, like mascarpone cheesecake with vanilla-roasted strawberries, warm huckleberry-blueberry pie, a chocolate almond tart, and a Prospect sundae with butterscotch ice cream, bourbon caramel, poached apricots, pecan brittle, and whipped cream. Don’t fear, the ice cream sandwiches and caramel popcorn remain on the menu.
