Express Train to Chocolate Heaven!

If you have never taken your date to Max Brenner before then Shame on You! Hailed for their ooey, gooey, chocolate goodness, Max Brenner creations are chocolate volcanos waiting to explode their sinful and smooth riches in yours and your dates mouths! 

Upon walking into their Union Square location you are instantly welcomed by a smooth and velvety aroma of rich chocolate that instantly makes your mouth water. Its hard for me to manage more than a mere few steps in the restaurant before wanting to eat everything in sight (and this is before I am even seated!). From chocolate cocktails to shakes to waffles to ice creams to fondues, Max Brenner appeals to every chocolate lovers taste buds. The atmosphere is cozy, the staff is helpful and their guests all seem to be in jovial moods (who wouldn’t be in a good mood if chocolate is present!). So take the next express train to Union Square and experience the decadence of Max Brenner for yourself! 

p.s….their tag line is “Chocolate: A Love Story” that’s a sign to begin your own love story!

Who says that cookies and milk are just for bedtime? The folks at The Milk Bar of Momofuku Restaurant redefines this bedtime treat to be enjoyed any time of the day – and in a very elegant setting too! 

Think they only serve cookies and milk? Think again! With dessert options like cake truffles (drool), pies by the slice, cakes, soft-serve ice cream and shakes you are sure to find a delectable treat to share with your date. 

The Milk Bar has 5 locations scattered throughout the major hubs of New York City. You can find them in the East Village, Upper West Side, Williamsburg, Carroll Gardens and my personal favorite location – Midtown. I love the Midtown location for two main reasons – 1. It is a short walk to the beautiful and romantic Central Park so we can get our desserts and sashay down for a romantic walk in The Park when the weather is gorgeous and 2. When New York decides to treat us with some not-so-nice weather, we can head upstairs to The Milk Bar’s cozy lounge to relax and enjoy our dessert! 

I assure you, you won’t be disappointed! 

 

Eating every Crumb!

I love having something sweet after dinner (or just something sweet in general) and who doesn’t love sinking their teeth into the decadent chocolatey goodness of a cupcake!

Crumbs really gets it right with their creations. Of all the cupcake bakeries I’ve been to in New York City, Crumbs ranks amongst my favorites and with twenty-one locations in Manhattan alone, getting to one will be a piece of cake, pun intended! 

Crumbs has thirty and counting Signature cupcakes. It is always a pleasure going in and longingly gaze at all of them to try to decide which one to get. The staff is friendly and patient (which is a blessing for an indecisive person like myself) and I have never been disappointed by any of their recommendations to date! 

My personal favorite? The Cappuccino Cupcake….coffee and dessert….need I say more? Check it out and let me know what you think! 

Happy eating!
