It’s close, but no cigar: Check out El Centro Georgetown’s clever dessert

September 27, 2013

We're a month from Halloween, but the Georgetown El Centro's chocolate mousse dessert has decided to dress up this year:

This is a clever menu offering from the 14th Street restaurant's new sister location. It's dark chocolate mousse and hazelnut chocolate cake in the shape of a cigar, made more realistic by the fake El Centro label. Servers even present the dessert to customers in a cigar box, as shown here. Of course, the illusion is shattered a bit when they put it on your plate next to a scoop of coffee ice cream, and you begin to eat your cigar with a fork, but nothing lasts forever. Chocolate cigars are $6 and only available at the Georgetown restaurant.
