I was asked to bring dessert to a dinner party tonight. I went a little crazy, buying three desserts from three bakeries. I was in Grand Central Station , so I went down to the food court on the lower level and bought a banana cream coconut pie from the Little Pie Company . In general I like but don't love LPC pies , but the banana coconut cream pie is pretty fine. My second spot was Soutine , the postage-stamp-sized bakery on West 70th Street. There I bought a prettily decorated chocolate cake with a chocolate ganache filling. Then I went to the new branch of Greenberg's on 76th and Broadway, where I bought a small coconut cake.
I'll post again after I try each one.
