Who says you need a campfire to cure your s'mores cravings? The ingenious riffs here mimic your favorite childhood treat—with loads of chocolate, graham cracker and marshmallow goodness—and manage to take the classic in totally unexpected, scrumptious new directions. Can you say "s'mores pancakes" and "s'mores pizza"? Read on.
Catch in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District counts Heidi Klum, Adele, Emma Watson, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen among its celeb visitors. The kitchen serves up inventive seafood dishes (from scallop gnocchi to mahi mahi wonton tacos), but the desserts are just as noteworthy. The must-try s’mores pizza is made with a graham cracker crust topped with homemade roasted marshmallows and chunks of milk and dark chocolate. And in case that's not enough, the pizza is served with burnt marshmallow ice cream on the side.
It’s a family affair at Lulu’s Allston in Boston. Miss USA 2012, the actress Olivia Culpo, is a frequent guest at this restaurant and beer bar, co-owned by her father and cousin. Start your day with a playful stack of fluffy s’mores buttermilk pancakes, studded with chocolate chips and sprinkled with mini marshmallows, graham cracker crumble and more chocolate chips. Go big with a long pour of Vermont maple syrup on top.
Bill Gates stops by the bustling RockCreek Seafood & Spirits in Seattle for its standout, globally sourced seafood. The desserts at this rustic yet chic spot are a draw, too, especially the namesake RockCreek S’mores. An elegant glass is filled with French chocolate mousse, rich caramel, sea salt and graham cracker crumbs, and topped with a puff of smoked meringue.
The homey vibe and roster of unbaked (but safe-to-eat) cookie dough treats at Cookie Do NYC attracts kids of all ages, including actress and model Molly Sims, DJ Hannah Bronfman, and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills regular Bella Hadid. For s’mores enthusiasts, there's the fabulous Gimme S'more. Chock-full of chocolate, graham cracker pieces and mini marshmallows, it's designed to be eaten raw (but needless to say it's terrific served warm too).
The aptly named OMG Bar at the D.C. bakery and coffeeshop Baked & Wired will have you saying just that. A bottom layer of graham cracker is topped with tiers of homemade marshmallow, homemade caramel and bittersweet chocolate. The result may look elegant, but eating it can be a joyfully messy experience. Photo by Erin Krespan.
You’re Killing Me S’mores
Anna Wintour and Michael Jordan have been known to head to Chicago's MK for a knockout meal.

The dark chocolate ganache, marshmallow, Spanish peanuts and graham cracker ice cream are so artfully displayed, you won't want to spoil the presentation. But something tells us you will.
