Best restaurant for chocolate cake

I'm surprised no one mentioned Jean Georges' warm chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. You can order it at the bar (in Nougatine).

Best Cheap Eats 2015

Ill start with some of my favorites:

Caracas - fantastic arepas for 7-9 dollars

Motorino - love the brussel sprouts with pancetta pizza

Parm - love the eggplant Parm and chicken parm sandwiches

Gyu-kaku - a cook it yourself Japanese bbq restaurant chain.. I like Takashi a lot but can only really afford gyu-kaku

NY Dosas(food cart) - Other than dosas there are terrific samosas, veggie drumsticks/rolls as well for only 1 or 2 dollars each

Los Tacos No. 1 - a favorite taqueria of mine

Dessert:
Levain bakery - their chocolate chip walnut cookie is classic

Doughnut plant - coconut cream filled is a favorite

It's worth trying in my opinion. I live in the area and it's one of my local choices I go to once a month.
