Best Brownie in NYC

Lurisia Apr 29, 2012 04:17 PM

I know it's sacrilege to deny the wonderfulness of Fat Witch and their splendiferous brownies, however, I think there may be a new brownie queen in town: Prodigy Coffee on Carmine.

Thoughts, Chowhounders?

    Never tried it! How about the sweet and salty brownie from Baked?

      I know bacon is kind of a tired-out trend, but when it comes to salty and sweet, the bacon brownies from Mari's NY are amazing. They're small but pack a big, fudgy, wallop.

          I tried the Fat Witch brownies once, they are good, but too small for the big price.

          I'm partial to the brownies at Film Forum and also at the maracon place on 23rd St.

            The chocolate babka at Prodigy is pretty incredible too.

              i think fat witch is too cakey and not chocolate-y enough. Millie feullie makes a tasty hazelnut pralined one
