Whether you call it devil’s food cake, lava cake or anything containing the word “decadent,” there’s no doubt that when chocolate cake is on your plate, it’s going to be indulgent. Spoil your taste buds January 27th on National Chocolate Cake Day and delight in a little slice of heaven. Here are some joints dishing up the best in delicious, decadent and dark desserts!

At Osetra Seafood & Steaks, you have not one, but two divine chocolate cakes to choose from. Their Flourless Dark Chocolate Cake is covered in a silky chocolate glaze and fresh seasonal berries. We’ll bet you won’t even notice that it’s missing the gluten! Wanting something a bit more molten? The Melting Hot Chocolate Lava Cake with vanilla gelato will ooze its way into your heart. Pick your poison, or better yet, get both!

If you’re looking for a boozy addition to your chocolate adventures, look no further than The Whiskey House’s Pecan-Bourbon Brownie. It’s a house specialty for a reason, and the Angels Envy bourbon included will make your dessert plate the envy of your whole table – be sure to guard your dessert accordingly!

With their focus on developing innovative and locally sourced dishes, it’s no surprise that Wood Ranch is redefining a classic with their Warm Chocolate Cake, made in-house daily. The carefully crafted flourless Guittard chocolate cake is accompanied by candied pecans, vanilla bean ice cream and is topped with a dreamy dollop of whipped cream for good measure. It’s almost too pretty to eat. Almost.

Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza & Grill is a Southern California institution for a reason, and their 30 years of culinary experience extends much further than just slinging pizzas. Sammy’s Flourless Chocolate Cake is the perfect finale to your meal after the woodfired pie has been gobbled down and the inevitable post-dinner sweet tooth sets in.

National Chocolate Cake Day is the perfect reason to take a second look at the dessert menu on January 27th – not that anyone should need an excuse to indulge in some cocoa-y goodness. Have your cake and eat it too!
