This chocolate slab is a keeper. This is the one I like on Friday nights alone, after a hearty dinner of chili, while watching classic on Netflix instant play. Via Mitchel London, found at the Soho location of Dean & Deluca's, it's a messy slab of chocolate and cream piled on top of each other. Ringing in at $7 a slice, it's not a bargain slice, but it's a worthwhile one. Flourless cake, dense but not fudgy, on the drier side, which works well in this combination. Then, dark chocolate mousse, and another layer of cake. Followed up with cream, and a final cake layer. Dust on the cocoa powder generously, and sink your forks in with abandon.
