Best Creme Brulee 2008. Underneath its brittle shell of shattering scorched sugar, the creme brulee at La Cremailliere is like a precious vein of gold: you'll be scraping and digging until you've thoroughly exhausted the supply. Made with the highest fat-content cream; the plumpest, most seed-laden vanilla beans; and the richest, most cholesterol-laden egg yolks, this dessert is an object lesson in lush; which should come as no surprise for fans of La Cremaillie's ice cream.
