Best Cookie


Baking Soda Shop, a project from two former Eleven Madison Park employees, has no brick-and-mortar location. Instead, it sells a collection of cookies and other treats at local coffee shops and from a stall at Hester Street Market. Look for the mint chip cookie, which is made with both chocolate chips and mint-infused cacao nibs from the Catskills. This is a textbook study of perfected texture and bite: With a firm outside and smooth center, it’ll remind you both of the best chocolate chip cookie you’ve ever had and of Thin Mints, those wafer-like Girl Scout cookies, for which you’re probably a little nostalgic.
