When dining at Potager, it’s all too easy to end the meal with the rich chocolate mousse—a treat that’s been on the menu since the restaurant first opened in 1997. But, I urge you to stray from the classic and opt instead for the seasonal Meyer lemon pound cake.

The deceptively light (even though you know it’s jammed with butter) cake zings with bright citrus and is perfectly matched with a scoop of cool pomegranate gelato and a tangy drizzle of pomegranate syrup. The combination is simple, but that’s just where chef Teri Rippeto excels.
