Eat Some Sweets... desserts in midtown


January 17, 2011
Here is a place created by a well known chef, without the $$$ prices and with multiple locations throughout the city. Thanks Mr. Colicchio for bringing us 'wichcraft with your business partners.  While we make no claims for their savory items, there is one dessert that is absolutely scrumdiddlyumptious; it's on the internets so it must be a word. 'wichcraft has a Lemon Poppyseed cookie filled with fruit preserves. The cookie sampled on two separate occasions was filled with raspberry and fortunately one party member could not eat raspberry.

You will be happy you did.
