Those who consider Midtown a dessert wasteland clearly have not hovered over the sweets lining the walls of Oren's in Grand Central. It's there that you can find the ever-elusive Cestropbeau ganache brownie, made in Smithtown, New York. A deep, dark creation that will satisfy lovers of fudgy brownies, the treat is a tempting blend of Belgian chocolate with demerara sugar, sea salt, espresso, and Saigon cinnamon. Perfect for the afternoon break or to nosh on during that long Metro North ride home.
