Best Of 2014: Dessert Destination

The first time I dined at Marigold, the meal was so delicious and filling I couldn't imagine eating dessert. But my friend insisted I order a dessert and take it home. Even a day later, that German Chocolate Mousse Cake easily qualified as the best I'd ever eaten. And it's just one of a long list of choices such as citrus, raspberry or brownie cheesecake; hazelnut torte; carrot cake; and crème brûlée. Since 2008, this classy spot on Centennial Boulevard has captured this category hands-down, and it should. Co-owner Elaine Chavanon is the real deal, having studied in France and worked with the legendary Gaston Lenôtre. "We don't skimp," Chavanon says. "We use all natural ingredients and the best ingredients. We make Bavarian cream ourselves with milk, cream and eggs." Among customer favorites, she says, are the double chocolate mousse cake and fruit tarts. So give yourself a break from that régime alimentaire, and enjoy. — Pam Zubeck

Bites 2013: Beef Bourguignon

When it comes to hitting the venerable Marigold Café for a rich, dark-brown pool of slow-cooked, mashable beef cuts and deeply rich gravy, here's the best advice: Leave your grandma at home. One bite of this, and she'll only get depressed and stop cooking. ($20)

Price: $$$
