New York: Levain Bakery

We accidentally stumbled upon the newly opened branch of Levain Bakery while we were strolling about Harlem. I had definitely planned on going to Levain...I just didn't expect to go there on my first day in New York:

We nabbed two monster cookies and brought them back to my friend's apartment to enjoy:

I couldn't help gawking at the chocolate chip walnut cookie and the chocolate peanut butter cookie. They were beautiful from every angle:

$4 a cookie is a lot...but ohmigawdtheyweresoridiculouslygood!! They're big and chewy and just wonderful. The chocolate chip walnut was good, but the chocolate peanut butter was uber decadent. I really wish I had some milk though.

We were really tired after rowing on the lake in Central Park (well, my friend was tired because she did all the rowing, but hey, I was running on two hours of sleep!). These cookies gave us the much needed energy boost to get out of the house and make it to our dinner reservations.
