Another day, another food holiday – but warning: this one will have you wanting to bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies ASAP. Today is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day and to celebrate, I’ve rounded up my six favorite chocolate chip cookies in the city.
Levain Bakery: Nothing beats a warm chocolate chip cookie right out of the oven. This tiny bakery on the Upper West Side is a must have spot for giant warm chocolate chip cookies. Get ready to wait in a long line, but promise its worth the wait!
Momofuku Milk Bar: Milk Bar is a favorite dessert spot thanks to their insanely delicious cookies, pies, cakes and soft serve. My favorites though are their spin on the classic chocolate chip cookie which includes cornflakes and marshmallows for a sweet and salty taste.
Untitled at The Whitney: After an afternoon of museum exploring, head downstairs to the chic and modern museum restaurant for an indulgent chocolate chip cookie and glass of milk. The perfect afternoon pick me up.
Dominque Ansel: For a spin on the classic cookie and milk, try a chocolate chip cookie shot! Dominque Ansel is the creator behind the famous cronut and other unique treats so head for a sugary happy hour fix.
By Chloe: On a health kick but craving chocolate? By Chloe will fix that. All their desserts are gluten free and vegan, so you can get your sugar fix without the guilt. Their giant cinnamon-espresso chocolate chip cookie is crisp and light, making it the ideal treat after dinner.
The City Bakery: This local favorite is known for two things: their super rich hot chocolate in the winter and their chocolate chip cookies all year long. What makes these cookies a favorite is their graham cracker like base and chunks of chocolate, giving them a delicious taste you can’t find anywhere else.
