The Best Chocolate Cake in the World – NYC

Nope, it’s not me going for those superlatives again. It’s the name of a brand new bakery in NYC that has been attracting a lot of attention and all because of ONE cake. Yup, the BEST chocolate cake in the world. Celebrities and average Joes – and Josephines – alike have been flocking to The Best Chocolate Cake in THe World‘s NoLita and DumBo locations for a taste of this Portuguese superwonder. The Upper East Side is not far behind, with a new location opening on Madison soon.

Behind this chocolate heaven made up in two “flavors” only – Traditional with a 55% cocoa content and Bittersweet with a 70% cocoa content – is its mastermind, Lisbon restauranteur and chef Carlos Braz Lopes. The cake consists, quite simply but also quite ingeniously, of three layers of flourless crisp meringue chocolate “cake” sandwiching a smooth mousse and topped by a luscious chocolate glaze. Pure delight!

Don’t be surprised to find a line outside the joint, of cool Chocolatistas seeking perfection. Point is, those of us who love cocoa and all its by-products will absolutely adore this place and come back again and again for more. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.. But summer bikini time seems soooo far away these days, go ahead and indulge while you can!
