Eccles in Manhattan?
My mom is visiting and asked if there's somewhere that has eccles (eccles cake). Googling, I see that a place called The John Dory Oyster Bar has them. However, it looks a little more pricey than we were hoping. Is there any bakery that makes them so that we can just buy and go? We don't actually care about the cheese that is supposed to go with it. We just miss the eccles themselves.
By coincidence, I had eccles cake last night at North End Grill, and it was listed as such on the menu. On today's menu, it's called "currant and almond puff pie" instead!
Anyhow, since NEG is a schlep (unless you live in Tribeca or FiDi), and I'm not sure they would do take out of a dessert, I'd definitely call first regarding availability.
I admittedly haven't had any of the others, but the one at the John Dory is really the best I've ever had outside of the UK. (The chef's treacle pudding is to die for too.)
