Levain Bakery: The World's Finest Cookies in New York
Levain New York: The World's Best Chocolate Chips Cookie... BY FAR
Third time at Levain, still impressed as if it was the first. What a place, what a cookie... The world's best cookies for sure.
Up on the West Side is a hole in the wall under street level 167 West 74th. You’ll find a small shop under "Max Wax" to better find it. Thousands and thousands of cookies were reaching out as we stood in line for the real deal. It was so cold but no one cared.
Now for the cookies, a dream! The best cookies I've ever had in my entire life.
The Raisin and Oat Cookie: It really makes you feel good. Huge mounds of oatmeal cookie–golden brown on the outside, moist on the inside–are crammed with plump baked raisins. These cookies are rich and buttery, a decadent version of a traditional favorite. A cookie served warm with a crunchy envelope and warm tender heart filled with raisins. Lightly sweet, this cookie is huge in size. It’s worth a try.
Walnuts, Chocolate Chips... Oh, my Lord, that's awesome, that's amazingly awesome. Crunchiness, molten heart, light bodied walnuts... A sensation the mind can't find words to describe. This signature cookie is packed with semi-sweet chocolate chips and chunks of walnuts so every single bite is as good as the one before. Huge, thick, and gooey but crisp on the outside, the New York Times says these “may possibly be the largest, most divine chocolate chip cookies in Manhattan.”
The Double Chocolate Cookie: A chocolate lover’s dream, made with dark chocolate cocoa and semi-sweet chips. I surely wasn't expecting to eat something even better than the one before. The world's famous orgasmic cookie can make you scream indistinctly to an extent of losing your mind. Prepared with an extra dark French cocoa and semisweet chocolate chips, they come out of the oven with molten layers of chocolate swirling together. As beautiful to look at as they are to eat, they’re guaranteed to satiate even a chocoholic’s craving. A dark chocolate cookie with molten dough and a heart of flowing chocolate sparkling independently in this ball of madness. Cut in the middle to see this amazing masterpiece before devouring it.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie: The perfect combination of dark chocolate with peanut butter chips. Did you ever feel like talking to a cookie? I'm not crazy but I really did. Two classic flavors got even better when combined in this tasty, over-the-top combination cookie. Dark chocolate cookie dough provides the sweet and peanut butter chips add the savory. A delicately balanced, delicious treat when you want the best of both worlds. An ultra-rich twist on a classic flavor combination: moist semisweet chocolate cookie is packed with soft, smooth peanut butter chips. A dark and delicious cookie confection. Chocolate and bits of molten peanut butter, the cookie that follows you for hours after you have finished it. My sweet Lord I have discovered what amazement is.
You can't visit New York and not pass by Levain; it's literally the best cookie I've ever had. A must try at least once in your life!
