The Mayan’s held chocolate in such high regard they referred to it as “food for the gods” and ever since its debut around 900 A.D. there has been nothing quite like it! Are you the type of person that compulsively craves and consumes chocolate? Or perhaps, it provides the perfect antidote to a bad day. Sound like you? Whether served a la mode or in a cute little ramekin with a warm molten center it’s your favorite dessert. Dallasites love a good dessert and in celebration of National Chocolate Cake Day on January 27th, Haute Living is serving up a big portion of “Death by Chocolate.” Let’s face it chocolate is addictive and rather than fight it, when your next sweet tooth beckons head to one of the Haute 5 places in Dallas, that are sure to indulge your chocoholic palette.



1 Mexican Sugar

Mexican food is a staple in Texas and Mexican Sugar redefines it. Located in trendy Legacy Village in North Dallas, it offers an authentic and creative menu of Latin inspired cuisine. As part of their unique approach they make a point in incorporating traditional ingredients in all of their dishes including their sultry desserts. Pastry Chef, Sarah Lewis, has outdone herself with what has become the star of the dessert menu, the avocado chocolate cake. It's an ancho spiced chocolate cake with cinnamon meringue, chocolate avocado mousse and ganache. Every mouthful is rich, sweet, smooth with a hint of heat.

2 Public School 214

This dessert most likely will NOT show up on a school lunch tray, but its an innovative ode to an old classic. Uptown hot spot, Public School 214 "schools" its guests with its nostalgic classroom decor and scholastically influenced art installations. So it's no wonder when you order what you think is going to be a traditional ice cream sandwich, you are greeted with a sweet surprise. The chocolate chunk cookies alone are enough to satisfy your chocolate cravings, but when lathered in nutella, topped with vanilla bean ice cream and then sprinkled in bacon brittle; an ice cream sandwich takes on a whole new identity.

3 Ocean Prime

Located in the heart of Uptown Dallas at Rosewood Court, Ocean Prime is a modern American restaurant and lounge. Just minutes away from some of the city's top attractions, it's one of the best places to come unwind, socialize and of course indulge. Haute Living's top pick on the dessert menu is the chocolate peanut butter pie. Incredibly chocolaty and creamy with the perfect balance of saltines and sweet, this peanut butter mousse with a bittersweet chocolate ganache is the perfect ending to a wonderful meal.

4 Paul Martin's American Grill

Nothing says decadence like the moist devil's food cake from Paul Martin's American Grill. Its three layers of rich ganache made with Valrhona chocolate, then garnished with Amarina wild cherries and topped with whipped creme satisfies the most fervent of chocoholics. Featuring a New American menu of familiar classics, Paul Martin's devil's food cake sums up the vision of founders Brian Bennett and Paul Fleming to serve dishes made from scratch, prepared simply and well.

5 Knife

Knife is a modern steak house with a classic twist offering an extensive charcuterie, seasonal game and large portions served on "slabs" as an interactive, shared serving. Known as being more than the average steak house, it's no wonder that the desserts are anything short of extraordinary. Pastry Chef Eric Cobb playfully composes his desserts by using an artistic and contemporary interpretation. Knife's famous chocolate and coffee dessert blends dark chocolate coffee ganache, whipped milk chocolate crémeux, chocolate sponge cake, coffee milk chocolate ice cream and an espresso fluid gel. With this dessert you may want to proceed with caution; it's certain to cause a sensory overload!
