They’re pudding on the ritz at Gordon Bennett

You don’t go to a British-style pub for the food — and you certainly don’t go for the dessert.

But Gordon Bennett, the new public house on S. Sixth Street in the real hipster heart of Williamsburg, offers something for “afters” that is worth a trip: a chocolate croissant bread pudding.

It’s like taking the greatest thing the French ever did (put chocolate in bread) and combine it with the greatest thing the English ever did (turn bread into pudding).

First of all, the croissant is all cut up into bite-sized pieces. Then, an eggy creamy custard is added (to make it suitably English). Then, the whole thing is singed under the broiler to give a bit of crunchiness on top while turning the chocolate and custard into a lava flow of gooey satisfaction.

And it’s just $5.

If there’s a better dessert value in this town, we’ll eat our hat — after pouring custard and chocolate all over it and putting it in the salamander for a minute or two, of course.

Gordon Bennett Pub and Grub [109 S. Sixth St. between Bedford Avenue and Berry Street, (718) 599-9109]

Reasonable discourse

Very nice there yankee chaps, but here in the U-K it' spelled: Poudinge
Just a tip for you lads on the other side of the pond.

Yes, finally our plan to take over Brooklyn with our terrible English cooking has come to fruition. Yummy!

I think it's brash to open up a brittish style restaurant serving what can arguably called Liverpool's national dish.
