Pastry chef Kathryn King at ARIA knows the secret to great desserts lies in juxtaposition: hot/cold, crunchy/creamy, sweet/bitter. Consider, for example, her vanilla-roasted plums, dense and melting, and matched with toasted lemon pudding cake, ginger ice cream and a few slivers of candied lemon peel. Her warm, chocolate-swirled cheesecake has turned ardent cheesecake detractors into greedy plate-hoggers. This is the one restaurant in town where it is essential to leave room for a sweet finish.

The pecan tart at WATERSHED is cute and unassuming. It sits there innocently on the plate hiding the fact that it's packing plenty of sweet crunch that's gonna whip your momma's pecan pie's ass. The Martha Stewart credo that pervades the decor at the restaurant seeps into the gooey, sweet confection of nutty, buttery goodness. There's no doubt: It's the real thing and it's a damn good thing.
