So, here's a dessert version of the list of noteworthy coffee shops that I posted a while back. Just like coffee, there are so many great options to get your sugar fix in the city, and the following are just a few of my recommendations (again, in no particular order).
1. Levain Bakery's chocolate chip walnut cookie — Upper West Side, Harlem
Chocolate chip walnut cookie — UWS location
Talk about heaven in cookie form. Levain Bakery's chocolate chip walnut cookie is seriously a godsend — and that's an understatement. This incredibly rich, indulgent and HUGE cookie will set you back $4, but as soon as you sink your teeth into this glorious creation, you'll know that every single penny is worth it.
