Chocolate Babka in Chelsea or MTW?

Hey, I've promised to bring authentic chocolate babka into my daughter's classroom on Friday and I don't have time to get to the E Village... anyone know where I can get some good stuff in the Chelsea vicinity? Balducci's? Midtown West area OK too... Thanks!

  1. I would take the extra ten minutes it takes to get to 80th and Broadway and go to Zabars. Great Chocolate Babka...

    1. really good chocolate babka can be found at Zarros--I bought by 88 year old aunt one when passing through Port Authority (7th Ave and 40th St). She loved it.

      1. I love the chocolate babka from Dean & DeLuca.

        1. I think D&D is the best...but I believe they get it from the same place as a few other places (maybe Zabars?). Do a search on this board and the Best Of board as this has been discussed before.
