There you'll find all sorts of non-chocolate wonders include this Carrot Cake ($6). Whether you get your tea to stay or to go, there's no way to turn down this cake. It's moist and dense with rough grated carrots and a handful of crushed walnuts. The cinnamon notes come through boldly and the whipped cream cheese frosting has a tangy finish. On a hot day, this is best paired with their Banana Smoothie, a balanced, icy concoction with a whole banana blended straight into the smoothie. Utterly refreshing. More

MarieBelle Looking Up

Emily Stone Post a comment

A new set of distinctive hand-painted bon bon designs will debut along with the new branch of MarieBelle this Friday. In New York, the chocolate race uptown from SoHo is on, and Maribel Lieberman is a lap ahead of Jacques Torres. Torres has been making noise about a new location on Amsterdam Avenue for months, but the grand opening won't come before November. Meanwhile, Lieberman (who's also been busy planting cacao trees in her native Honduras and selling Blackberries on the web) will open a branch of her MarieBelle chocolate boutique at 762 Madison Avenue this Friday.
