Care to escape the dreary New York winter blues for a taste of European charm? Spoil yourself with “Chocolate Indulgence,” a delectable dessert offered at DA|BA, the Scandanavian-inspired eatery in Hudson. A crisp chocolate base is topped with both white and dark chocolate mousse and a raspberry wine gel; the dish is then garnished with a slice of baked orange and an edible pansy. Pretty and packed with flavor, it’s well worth a ride up the Taconic.
