Everything you want to know about chocolate
It's not just any flourless chocolate cake. This one from Spot Dessert Bar in the East Village comes with a white shower of coconut snow, a clean (though plenty bold) flavor concoction made from a seemingly simple base of coconut milk and water. The cake is warm and heady with a slightly crisp crust, forkfuls of moist dark chocolate lightened with zesty cuts of passionfruit jelly—a balance of rich and light. And as all desserts here must be appealing to the eyes as much as the tastebuds, it's finish with a tumble of fresh strawberries and crunchy chocolate pearls. Best of all, it's never too sweet.
