Levain Bakery: The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Ever

Unless you've been living under a rock throughout your life as a New Yorker, you have either heard of, seen or dreamt about eating one of Levain Bakery cookies. If you have been living under a rock or don't live in New York, Levain Bakery is an upper west side bakery known for having the best cookies ever. They are famous for their classic appeal, extreme thickness, large size and almost sexual gooeyness. The one downside to this bakery is that it's all the way uptown on the upper west side, and for those of us who live downtown that trip is not really what we feel like doing. But one day I decided it was what I felt like doing. And this is what happened.

I hope you understand.
