Best brownie ever? I surely wouldn’t go that far. But when your hotel offers turndown service with a nice two-bite Fat Witch brownie, you can’t complain. At least I didn’t.
I was surprised and a little sad that, instead of going across the street to City Girl Café for their decadent Valrhona brownies, 60 Thompson scoops up these babies from across town at the Chelsea Market.
So in addition to testing out new chocolate chip cookies and indulging at Pichet Ong’s new dessert bar, Spot (more on those later), I plunked myself down for a few bites of baked goodness every day during my short but sweet stay at the hotel.
The brownie fared better than the blondie with a dense, undercooked middle (the way I like ’em).
The blondie had the chocolate chip bonus, but were a bit on the dry, crumbly side.
Next time I’m in town, I’ll have to give some of the other flavors—available only in full size—a shot.
It's only fair that I try the walnut, caramel and spicy brownies before denying Fat Witch the best brownie title.
