As springtime approaches and Atlanta temperatures rise,  time is quickly running out for the chance to taste Ray’s Restaurants’ warm white chocolate bread pudding! This comforting bread pudding is prepared with a caramel anglaise and served alongside a cooling scoop of High Road burnt sugar ice cream. This dessert is served on  the three-course winter menu, but it won’t last long, so hurry in to Ray’s in the City, Ray’s on the River and Ray’s at Killer Creek for a taste.
