Naming the best chocolate chip cookie in America is a highly contentious topic. It is our belief that Levain Bakery produces the most consistent, best chocolate chip cookie we have tasted in New York. We first received some as a gift from a friend in the food world (by the way a cooking gift is a good idea) and we were almost immediately converted.
What makes Levain Bakery’s chocolate chip cookies so good?
- The chocolate to cookie ratio is high. At times feeling like 50% and beyond. There are pockets of oozing chocolate throughout the cookie (especially when gently heated for 1-2 minutes in the oven).
- The quality of chocolate. A chocolate chip cookie is only as good as its ingredients (unless we are talking about a good grocery store chocolate chip cookie) and Levain uses excellent chocolate.
- They are in high demand which means turnover is high which means the cookies are always fresh. This is important. Like any baked good, a fresh version of a mediocre recipe beats an stale version of a great recipe. So with Levain Bakery’s Cookie you get a great recipe paired with peak freshness resulting in cookie magic.
Does Levain Bakery Deliver Chocolate Chip Cookies?
Where does Levain Bakery ship?
Anywhere in the USA.
Which Levain Cookie should I get?
Levain’s Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies are great, so are the Rocky Road but for the best Chocolate Chip Cookie in NYC, go straight up Two Chip Chocolate with a glass of cold milk. There is a reason they are probably NYC’s most famous chocolate chip cookie.
