A recent Chowhound thread asked the question, "Where is the best brownie in the East Village?" Suggestions of Blackhound Bakery and Pinisi were introduced along with Ciao for Now and Something Sweet on the corner of 1st and 11th.
But no, those aren't the best spots to get your brownie fix. Instead, turn your attention to Sundaes & Cones. Look past the ice cream, to that little glass cake stand piled with a pyramid of brownies. A single dollar buys one of those dark fudgy squares. Theirs is a no-nut version, dark, and extra-moist.
Or for something further east...
Or for something more cake-like, go further east to Northern Spy Food Co. $1.50 for these brownies, which come studded with big walnut chunks and halves. No itty bitty chopped nuts here. These will please those looking for a slightly less intense number—the crumb is finer, each bite almost light. They are stored in a glass jar, next to a display of Liddabit caramels. Both these brownies are simple, everyday, no nonsense brownie. No frosting, no mint, nothing fussy. Aren't those really the best type of brownies in the end?
