Mesa Grill is a Bobby Flay restaurant. I think that is a name that means a lot to people who watch the Food Network, but I am not one of those people.
Here, however, is a name that does mean something to me: Chocolate Pretzel Tart with Spicy Peanut Butter-Chocolate Swirl Ice Cream.
It costs $11, which is a lot for dessert, but that price may actually be fair, considering the insane number of textures and flavors going into this concoction. The ice cream really was spicy. The juxtaposition of the soft chocolate and its hard outer shell was fascinating.
BOTTOM LINE: This is not a necessary chocolate experience. But if you're at the Mesa Grill and have $11 to spare, you'd be a fool not to try it, because you would be hard-pressed to find this particular dessert anywhere else.
