I'll have to check out that carrot cake. On a related note Cafe Dominique in Houma had this dessert once which was really simple but ridiculously awesome. Just a piece of carrot cake paired with some creole cream cheese ice cream. It's a really great combination.

A few people that have posted around here went on a slow night to Stella and had the dessert tasting menu or something like that. I am guessing it would be tough to beat that as far as high end desserts.
