Dessert elegance: Banana cream … sphere

A large group of San Francisco 49ers players made a post-Super Bowl loss visit to Cut at Palazzo, where they indulged in dishes including the restaurant’s unique banana cream pie.

It’s made with banana ice cream, custard and compote, house-made Cool Whip, vanilla wafers and 24-karat gold leaf layered into a milk-chocolate sphere (which was dyed red for the team’s visit). When the warm banana-caramel sauce is poured over, the sphere melts into a flowerlike shape, revealing the banana bounty within. It’s $20.
