There’s nothing better on a hot summer night than a stroll down Hanover Street, following your nose into Modern Pastry for a creamy, cool dessert. Plain and chocolate-dipped cannoli are made to order, piped with fresh, mild ricotta, for results that are delicate, never soggy. If you prefer a nightcap, reach for a spongy, rum-soaked baba. And their handmade, crispy shells filled with custardy “lobster tail cream” blow rivals out of the water.
