Gong Gan in Flushing is a dessert cafe by day and a wine bar by night, and you should bookmark it for the next time you want to lowkey impress someone by picking an extremely cool place to meet up. The downstairs is bright, airy, and has lots of mirrors and avant-garde sculptural elements that mirror the zany designs of their signature cakes. Upstairs, the atmosphere is a little darker, more date-night adjacent. We can’t stop thinking about the warm croffle topped with vanilla ice cream and a pile of grated brunost, but the black tea cheesecake decorated with a garden of colorful meringue mushrooms is very good, too.
