Fun birthday treat delivery in NYC?
May 17, 2017 7:46 AM   Subscribe

I'd like to send a friend a birthday dessert on Friday May 26. In the past I've done Milk Bar and Baked by Melissa. I want something new but don't really want to pay Goldbely prices. Any recommendations? Delivery will be in Hell's Kitchen, no allergies or food restrictions!

I love going to Amy's Bread whenever I'm in Hell's Kitchen. They're on 9th, between 46th and 47th.

Lloyd's Carrot Cake is reputed to be excellent, and they have a location in East Harlem, just a cab or Uber ride away.

Not new, but the best bakery in New York is Schmackery's.

Veniero's? For Italian pastry, they're the best.

Mah Ze Dahr! ZOMG so good. They do local NYC delivery. The Choux!! Get the Choux. Also their presentation is top notch. Def a step up from the usual IMO.

Four & Twenty Blackbirds makes amazing pies & apparently you can now get them delivered.

If your friend lives in Hell's Kitchen I would skip both Amy's and Schmackery's since they are already neighborhood standbys. I live in HK; that the thing that I want the most that I'd never splurge on for myself is a Lady M Mille Crepe Cake - any flavor would do but maybe green tea above all the others - delivered to my door.

+1 to Mah Ze Dar! (Especially the Mah Ze Dar bar and brownie.) Underwest Donuts is another of my favorites and I believe they deliver through Caviar.

Insomnia Cookies makes totally delicious cookies, and delivers late.
