Milk Bar
Washington, DC

Featured at: Grand Tasting Reception 

Milk Bar is a dessert empire with the mission to inspire celebration and spread joy through dessert. Founded by award-winning pastry chef Christina Tosi, Milk Bar opened its doors in NYC’s East Village in 2008, and quickly became a cult sensation. Known for baking outside of the lines and turning traditional dessert on its head, Milk Bar employs an omni-channel approach, with wildly popular storefronts in New York, D.C., Toronto, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Boston, as well as experiential baking classes in New York, DC and LA, and a direct-to-consumer eCommerce business. Milk Bar’s signature desserts include Crack Pie®, the Compost Cookie®, “naked” layer cakes with unfrosted sides, and Cereal Milk Soft Serve, among other familiar yet unexpected treats.
