Black Hound, New York, NY
I have known about this magnificent East Village dessert shop for years, but was surprised one year when my parents special ordered a cake from them for my birthday. I had no idea how they knew about this place, but when talking to my mom, who is partial to retrievers, she said, “It had to be good because they have a Black Lab as their logo”. And let me tell you, she is right! Located on Second Avenue between Tenth Street and Eleventh Street, Black Hound bakes some of the finest cakes, tarts and, of course, their famous chocolate truffles. When in a dilemma on what to bring to a party or dinner, I also find they are a sure fire hit. They even make individual cakes and tarts. Pick one or more. Your friends and family will thank you for the delicious ending to a meal.
