The only way that this type of establishment will do well is if the desserts are extraordinarily good enough to appeal to everyone. I make...
I'm curious, is fresh pork belly on the table or must it be cured/smoked to qualify?
Maybe there was something sweet in the poaching liquid.  You could always call the restaurant and find out.  And then let us know too.
