Fellow Chowhounds: where can I buy the best fruitcake in Manhattan?

    Milk Bar has an outpost at the Union Square Holiday Market where they're selling stollen. It's my only experience with "fruitcake" so I can't say if it is traditional or not, but it is good. There's some talk on the board that it was better last year. I guess that's irrelevant now, though.

    Momofuku Milk Bar
    251 E 13th St, New York, NY 10003

    Union Square Holiday Market
    E 14th St Union Square W, New York, NY 10003

      Stollen is very different from fruitcake. The former is a yeast dough, i.e. bread with scattered fruits, where fruitcake is just what it sounds like it would be.
