Best chocolate dessert or cake?

I love desserts -- and mostly chocolate desserts. Where do you think the best chocolate cake/desserts are in the DC area? I am not one for flourless cakes or really really rich chocolate but something moist and melt in your mouth.

  1. Try the chocolate cupcakes at Georgetown Cupcake - they have several varieties.

    1. I had a chocolate and vanilla bread pudding at 1789 about 3 years ago and I still dream about it. Also the molten chocolate cake and kit kat bar at Central are both wonderful.

        Coco Sala chocolate sampler plates??

      2. the hazelnut chocolate bar at PS7 is awesome. Not big enough tho :)

        1. The chocolate mousse cake at Pastries by Randolph is my favorite chocolate cake in the area. Brasserie Beck has a really good chocolate cake on their dessert menu that is light, with good textures and very chocolaty.

          1. I do love the cupcakes at Georgetown cupcakes! And i agree with you on Central's chocolate cake. I will have to try the 1789 bread pudding and Brasserie Beck. Thanks!
