Best Black and White Cookies?

Is there any place left in the city where you can get a tender, soft, black and white cookie? Most seem days old, dry and wrapped in plastic.Recommendations?

    1. Aside from thegforceny's recommendation, if the East Village is more convenient, Moishe's, on 2nd Av. just south of 7th St., makes good black & whites. If you ask them whether they were made that day, they'll tell you (they do sometimes sell day old items).

        for what it's worth, Greenberg's has a new location in the lower level of the Plaza.

      2. Zabar's, in Grand Central, makes a good one. And i have had good ones from Zaro's at times. Yes, Greenberg makes a good one but our most recent purchase there of cakes and such, including their brownies, was below par. I hope it was just this once.

          Junior's, also in GCT, has very fresh, soft, tasty ones. Large or small.

            +1 for Junior's. Yes, very good black & white cookie.

        2. I'd recommend Glaser's on the UES way ahead of Greenberg. i've had both and in my opinion Glaser's is far superior (and significantly cheaper, if I remember correctly). Zaro's are good too.

          1. Orawasher's, 78th between 2nd and 3rd, makes a good version too.
