At this award-winning bakery, choosing a dessert is like making a chess move. First you overthink it: Do you go with the daily low-priced deal, or the most decadent item — like the mousse-topped brownie covered in ganache? When you finally make your move — perhaps one of the oversized cupcakes — you immediately see all the other decisions you could have made: cannoli, elephant ears, mousse- or fruit-filled tarts. And finally, there’s the question of sharing: Should you buy a box of assorted cookies to split with coworkers, or just indulge in a few mini-cheesecakes for yourself? Rest easy, oh seeker of sweets — there is no wrong decision. You’ll be back again soon anyway.
