Beautiful, contemporary decor perfectly matches the Euro-Island cuisine that adorns the menu at 3660 on the Rise. Local ingredients highlight many of the dishes, and the desserts are no different.

The Mile High Waialae Pie ($8.50), the restaurant’s most popular dessert, features Haagen Dazs vanilla and coffee ice cream with macadamia nut brittle.

“The ingredients in Mile High Waialae Pie give the dessert a nice texture,” says pastry chef Julien Fusero.

Pudding on a Whim ($8.50) is made of “day old” French bread, eggs, cream, vanilla, cinnamon and sugar.

“The flavor for the bread pudding speaks for itself, as it is a comfort food for many of our guests,” says Fusero.

And get your fill of Warm Chocolate Souffle Cake ($8.50) and its house-made mocha sauce, along with semi-sweet Guittard chocolate.

“A nice pairing of warm chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream gives this dessert a nice balance with each bite,” explains Fusero. “The mocha sauce rounds out the flavor of the cake and ice cream.”

3660 on the Rise is also holding a cooking class so those in the community can learn to create dishes like those served at the elegant establishment.

Guests will receive cooking tips from chef Russell Siu Jan. 15 at 6 p.m. Slow Roasted Salmon, Cream of Leek Soup, Marinated Fire Roasted Breast of Chicken and Banana Cream Tart are on the menu.

Those who enroll ($70) in the class will also be treated to a serving of each course, along with a wine pairing.

So, ring in the new year at 3660 on the Rise with amazing desserts and the chance to create your own delicious dishes.
