as a regular visitor over the past 15 years for the food more than anything else! can anyone recommend what they think is their favourite BCP in new york and surrounding boroughs?

the following have been tried and tested with no clear winner -LITTLE PIE CO,NORTHEAST KINGDOM,POST HOUSE STEAKHOUSE,BLUE SMOKE,CLINTON ST BAKING,REDEYE GRILL,HOPE AND ANCHOR(BKLYN),BLT FISH,BALTHAZAR(ADMITTEDLY A BANANA AND RICOTTA TART BUT V.GOOD)
let's hear it guys and gals for arguably the! best dessert.

    I haven't had great banana cream pie in New York yet, but if you love b.c.p., you are doing yourself a disservice if you haven't tried banana pudding from Buttercup Bakery (there's one on the Upper West Side, and one on the Upper East). It is quite possibly the best dessert I have ever had.

          Does Magnolia Bakery's Banana pudding count?
          I'm trying Hill Country's tonight.....

            Billy's Bakery serves a good one.

              I second Billy's. I like Blue Smoke and Clinton St. too, although CS's is a little bland.
