Chicago's Moto Restaurant has a new dessert that's right in line with the season. Created by pastry chef Claire Crenshaw, the “100 Days of Summer” mignardise (or bite-size dessert) has coconut macarons painted to look like beach balls. The treats are plated with white-chocolate seashells and pineapple starfish, as well as “sand” made from brown sugar.
