Creme Brulee is one of my all-time favorite desserts....ever. However, I have reached the point in my food-snobbery that I am rarely satisfied with this tasty morsel. There are 2 main criteria for an excellent creme brulee, it must be WARM, and the shell must CRACK when you tap it with a spoon. The Maple Creme Brulee at the Lake House Pub and Grille is all this and more. It is delicate and maple-y, but is not too sweet or overpowering. The shell is thin, but present, and the custard is smooth and silky. It is one of the best desserts I have had in VT in a very long time, if not ever.
