Black & White

Lenny's has the best black & white cookie in all of NYC. As one who regularly consumes fine baked goods, I feel I can say this with certainty. More cake-like than cookie, with just the right amount of frosting. Speaking of frosting, it's so so good. The sugary white side is sweet and the chocolaty black side has just a hint of coffee (of course, to enhance the chocolate flavor). At $1.75, it's a steal of an NYC deal too. One of my favorite treats is to get a Lenny's sandwich (#1 Lenny's Combo or the G3), specialty soda, and cookie on 74th & Columbus, then head over to Central Park for a picnic.

Long live the Lenny's picnic! (I'll still head down the street to Levain for the cookie, though, being the chocoholic that I am).

Wish I were there with you. Let's go next week!

RUDE. I know you're doing this to tease me. That cookie is hands-down one of the tastiest I've ever consumed. It's a to-go cake (even more so than a cupcake) plus it's not too heavy on the chocolate (remember, I'm not a huge fan).

Send me one?

p.s. I haven't stopped thinking about that cookie for one long month.

You have convinced me. Next time I am in NYC (whenever that may be) I am going to try this beauty out!
Ali's post made me laugh.

I used to get the black and white cookie at the Amish Market - it wasn't the best - but it was the closest!

Looks delicious. If we ever go to New York again, I'm calling you for all the best places to eat!

I have to say this post made me feel just a little bit green around the edges... (green with envy that is) I love New York! What a fun post! :)
