I'm a firm believer that if you're going to do something, do it right. When I fail, I do it spectacularly, and when I fall, it's usually with a resounding crash and a crowd of spectators. Same goes for birthdays. If I'm going to be publicly embarrassed, it better be with a rousing, off-key rendition of "Happy Birthday to You" and a very large candle. Which is why I appreciate the birthday cake on Thor's new dessert menu, which comes complete with a foot-high sparkler that illuminates the entire restaurant.
Other restaurants with birthday cake (and who doesn't love a good yellow cake with pink icing?): Restaurant Eve in Washington, D.C., and The Peasant and the Pear in Danville, California. Know of more? Add to our list by commenting below.
