      Lady M's mille crepes cake sold at Dean & Deluca.
      Normally I buy mill crepes cake here and pick up some pastries at nearby Dominique Ansel thegforceny mentioned above. :)

        got the lady M cake and the brooklyn blackout. everyone enjoyed them so thank you for the reco! however, at $45/6"cake, i thought they were waaaaayyyyy overpriced.

            I'm a fan of Black Hound, especially their chocolate mousse cake.
