Exploring the streets of New York City is one of my favorite things to do. Looking for new discoveries or going to recommended ones, I never stop. This is not a traditional food blog. I don't focus on restaurant reviews, or cooking tips; but I find specific items that you absolutely must try. Whether it be a cranberry donut or the best cappuccino. The focus isn't on the usual, but the cheap, the best, and the hidden.

I am always looking for new places to go! Send me a tweet, or leave me a tip of your favorite place or find in the comments!

This is something new. Well for those of us in our twenties. When my grandfather perks up and says, “oh! I know that place!”, you immediately know you’ve missed something. Apparently William Greenberg Desserts is pretty well established. A New York institution if you will. Anyway, if you like black and white cookies, hell, even if you don’t like black and white cookies, you’ll want to stop by William Greenberg Desserts for one of these. Now I’m sure you’re wondering, what makes this the best black and white cookie? I catch your drift. I haven’t really ever had a bad one either. Well, when you bite into this cookie, you can immediately tell something is different. Better. There’s an amazing amount of depth in this cookie, and the frosting is what really separates it from the crowd. Hey, the least you can do is go throw down the $1.50 for the mini b&w, then we can all be confused as to why this cookie is better than the rest. 

The best black and whites, since 1946.

Tip: Don’t mess around, just go for the black and white.
