Until two maybe three years ago, New York City enjoyed 3 Taylor Bake Shops, offering powerchocolate brownies, amongst many other generous, full flavored, bakings. I am still depressed they have not resurfaced yet. Any thoughts? Any leads?

    I would recommend the brownie at Jacques Torres Chocolate, in Greenwich Village, on Hudson & King St. The brownie is made by an expert who is a classically trained French chef, who uses the finest imported cacao from Belgium, and freshly made on premises.

      City Girl on Thompson and and Oro on Mott both have brownies, the former rich leaning to fudge, the latter dryer more to a cake style.

      i know its totally played out and famous for cupcakes but the chocolate chip fudge brownie at magnolia is my favorite brownie in the city. although the other night i remember someone was telling me about a brownie that i needed to try that they were completely obsessed with, i wish i could remember this conversation and report back... i'm curious as well though as to what other brownies people love, especially ones with fudge chunks in them.

        the spicy brownies at the chocolate bar are a favorite.

          where is chocolate bar? Nothing I've had compared to Taylors. Not even Voges.
