Red Velvet Cake

I'm obsessed with this cake and am looking for the best in NYC. Any suggestions where I can find it?
Everyone always talks about how wonderful his red velvet cake is. I tried it the other night and, quite frankly, was underimpressed. It seemed quite dry.
I hate Magnolia cupcakes, but their red velvet cake is pretty good. They make a butter based cake, and not an oil based one though, so it tastes a bit different. Polka Dot Cake Studio makes an amazing red velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing. I'm glad I don't live closer, or I'd be eating these every day.
Lord's Bakery - Nostrand Ave between Flatbush and Glenwood Aves in Brooklyn. Perhaps not *best* but damn good.
Parking is HORRID, but this is NYC. :)
I was not impressed w/ Amy's Bread's red velvet. Great texture. No flavor. Magnolia's is also dull.
