The best cakes can be ordered in advance from Good Enough to Eat restaurant on Columbus and 85th. They do not decorate however. They are so delicious, I had them make my wedding cake.

Does anyone remember?

I cannot remember the name of the white-tablecloth restaurant in a dorm building at Columbia University. Can someone help me? It was very good, if memory serves.

Anything good near Hotel Wales on UES?

Sarabeth is downstairs, which is quite good. So is Paola's which I would not recommend.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

I vote for Levain also. If you prefer crispy, go to Pain Quotidien.

doughnut plant vs dough

Dough wins by a mile, with Dough Loco a close second. Donut Plant donuts are tough.
