These cookies ($10) are not actually on the menu at Isola. But they're yours if you ask. You'll get three warm chocolate chip cookies baked to order with two tall glasses of cold milk—whole milk, of course.

Those who've stayed overnight at the Mondrian SoHo will immediately recognize these cookies that were once on the room service menu. Crunchy at the edges and soft and softer as you hit the middle, each bite features warm pockets of melting milk chocolate chips. Comforting and easy to love with sugar sprinkles over the surface, they're simple cookies done right. The portions serves two perfectly, though it could easily be devoured by a single person when the craving hits.
