Best Chocolate Cake in the World
55A Spring St (between Lafayette and Mulberry Sts)
Yep, that is the name of the bakery. This is the first American location of a Brazil based chain. They will also serve Counter Culture coffee and Il Laboratorio del Gelato.
From Grub Street: Bras's "best chocolate cake in the world" is actually three cakes of varying sweetness: a sugary cake made with 53 percent cocoa, a semisweet made with 70 percent, and — for those adventurous of palate — a bitter, zero-sugar version that's touted as being lower in calories. All are variations on a recipe made "without flour or baking powder ... a confection made from a top-of-the-line Belgian chocolate mousse," which from pictures appears to be swirled together with meringue.
