There’s always room for dessert! And even if there isn’t, we’re sure there still is once you see the menu. Restaurants in Queens have been very creative with their dessert options over the past few years, but of course there’s nothing like a good slice of pie or cheesecake to finish off your meal. Maybe even slap on a scoop of ice cream to make it a la mode (and more fattening. Oh well). So if you do happen to have room for what’s probably the best part of any meal this year, then head over to the Best Dessert in Queens to stuff yourself full.
