Craving a little s’more summer before the season sneaks away? National Toasted Marshmallow Day on August 30 has your back. Here are 9 spots to celebrate the late summer occasion that will melt your heart and just may inspire you to bust out your ukulele.
Tableside S’Mores at Prime & Provisions, Chicago, Illinois
Order the Tableside S’Mores dessert, and you’ll get a flash of campfire, too. The dish is presented as a chocolate dome with graham crackers, toasted marshmallow, and marshmallow-flavored gelato inside. Hot chocolate is poured over the dome and, as the dome melts, the smoky campfire smell is released. Make a reservation at Prime & Provisions.
Churro S’More at Boqueria-Flatiron, New York, New York
Executive chef Marc Vidal, who hails from Spain, melts the American tradition of a s’more with his beloved homeland’s churros. Meet the Churro S’More — chef doesn’t toast the marshmallows over a direct flame but uses a special iron tool typically used to caramelize Crema catalana. Make a reservation at Boqueria-Flatiron.
S’Mores Skillet at ArtBar, Cambridge, Massachusetts
Sitting pretty overlooking the Charles River, with outdoor fire pits to set the campfire scene, ArtBar has a Fire Pit Menu featuring the S’mores Skillet as a summery dessert op. You’ll get housemade toasted marshmallows, chocolate ganache, and salted bourbon caramel drizzle. Make a reservation at ArtBar.
Bonfire S’Mores at Havana Beach Bar at The Pearl Hotel, Rosemary Beach, Florida
Hand-crafted graham cracker cookies are served alongside a jar of flame-kissed vanilla marshmallows, marshmallow fluff, and cayenne-spiced chocolate sauce at this restaurant that gives a nod to Ernest Hemingway’s love for Havana. The dessert is sweet and spicy, just like Havana. Make a reservation at Havana Beach Bar at The Pearl Hotel.
