A sweet 'meatloaf' in Oyster Bay

Sometimes, things are not quite what they seem.

Pictured above: "meatloaf, mashed potatoes, peas and carrots." It's a whimsical dessert at Jack Halyards in Oyster Bay. Chef John Brill constructs a chocolate-Heath bar-banana bread pudding, with vanilla ice cream and a brunoise of cantaloupe and kiwi. The gravy, of course, is warm chocolate sauce.

Visuals aside, it tastes good, too.

If this doesn't sing to you, Brill also sends out a white chocolate pizza.

Jack Halyards, 62 South St., Oyster Bay; 516-922-2999.
