Blaze of Glory

Baked Alaska? Oh, the variations are grand this winter! Here are three of our favorites this season.
The Oceanaire's Baked Alaska will warm up any January evening.

The Oceanaire
Towering eight inches high, Baked Alaska crafted from cake and ice cream is covered in a beehive of meringue, which is doused in alcohol and set ablaze tableside. $11, 1201 F St. NW, 202.347,2277

Charlie Palmer Steak
The caramel ice cream core of this Baked Alaska is enrobed in chocolate and crowned with a swirl of meringue, which is lit up as diners ooh and aah. $9, 101 Constitution Ave. NW, 202.547.8100

It takes five days to make this version of Baked Alaska with hazel and vanilla ice cream, graham crackers and meringue, but it burns for 10 seconds after getting drenched with vanilla vodka and set afire. $18, 931 H St. NW, 202.695.7660
