Serious Eats: Talk
My NY Experience
Just thought I would do a quick follow up to my experience in NY considering I got so much guidance and help from people here. Here is a quick breakdown:
Shopsin's: While it was pricey, the flavors were out of this world and totally unique making it worth it. PS Luke and Zach are really nice guys if you can make a connection.
Sugar Sweet Sunshine: Best Cupcake deal, nice flavor.
Minetta Tavern: 26 is a lot for a burger but it was the best burger of my life with some really awesome fries. The bone marrow was good too.
Rice to Riches: Overpriced rice pudding, good but not worth it.
Sweet Revenge: Unique flavors that were good but fairly expensive.
Donut Plant: Good flavors but a little pricey, once in a while stop.
Amy Bread: Sticky bun was good top but too big that the bottom became rather flavorless.
Shake Shack: Great burgers, awesome fries, and outstanding custard (Got the gingerbread).
2 Little Red Hens: Ok red velvet, but mind-blowing brooklyn blackout.
Levain Bakery: Best cookies in america, peanut butter chip is better than chocolate chip.
Jacque Torres: Great hot chocolate, decent cookie.
Motorino: Awesome spicy soppresetta.
Artichoke: Great piece of spinach and aritchoke.
Momofuku Milk Bar: Just don't get the hype. Cookies were dry and ice cream was too pricey.
Brownstone Diner: Great pancakes (Nut n honey) and good atmosphere.
Katz: Overpriced for a not so mind blowing or big sandwich. Biggest dissapointment of the entire trip
Bouchon Bakery: Great TKO and decent chocolate chip.
City Bakery: Inedible chocolate chip, and decent hot chocolate.
Fat Witch: Ok brownie but nothing spectacular.
