Maybe it’s because Valentine’s Day is around the corner, maybe it’s because our New Year’s resolutions are starting to wear off, but whatever it is, February has us craving chocolate, and Diner 248 is serving it big in the form of their massive slice of Chocolate Grace Cake.
Almost six inches high, the dessert is complete with two layers of the restaurant’s fudge brownie-style cake, “a touch” of Kahlua, scratch-made whipped cream and chocolate whipped cream and is finished with sweet morsels and chocolate syrup. The top-selling, shareable dessert got its name from the former employee, Grace, who created the dish.
Chocolate arguably goes with everything, but co-owner Stavros Gougoustamos recommends pairing the cake with d’Arenberg Stump Jump Shiraz, Australia, or their Tröegs Java Head Stout, brewed in Harrisburg.
Another must-try dessert is the diner’s house-made banana cake with cream cheese icing, which is neck and neck with the Chocolate Grace Cake as far as best sellers go.
