        Is Gertel's even offering retail service any more?

      2. One good place is William Greenberg. Very good desserts, pretty expensive but worth it. Some people like Crumbs, but I've never tried anything there.

          I was on the UES a few weeks ago and tried Crumbs for the first time. It's a good thing for me that they're not located anywhere near where I live. I'd be a frequent customer! Their cupcakes are first rate. Not only beautiful but delicious. They even offer parve cake selections, if pre ordered.

        2. Greenberg has good cakes. Fairway has some damn good milchig cakes too.

            Where is Greenberg? I'm in the gramercy park area.

              It's on Madison in the high 70s on the west side of the street.

          2. My most favorite dessert. Also, make sure you check the hashgacha on Greenberg.
