After each and every trip I take to New York City, I tell myself that I need to stay longer. There is never enough quality time with family, especially as there’s a little one in the picture now. And really, who has time to taste all of the sweet temptations the city has to offer ? I did my best, making my usual stops around town, as well as seeking out what’s new and different. Some standouts of the latter: Butter Lane’s cookie dough cupcake, Zucker Bakery’s date and halvah “rose,” Lafayette’s birthday cake macaron and William Greenberg’s sweet potato “black & white” cookies, to name a few. Then there were the unplanned discoveries too: a spontaneous tasting of Raaka chocolate bars in Bryant Park, a bacon maple syrup macaron while at Bosie Tea Parlor and pumpkin babka sitting right next to the rugelach at Breads Bakery.
New York City just keeps getting sweeter.
