The Edible Guide

Our picks for where to eat, drink and shop in the city.


Mah-Ze-Dar oozes some seriously undeniable glamor. A much more chic Willy Wonka factory of delights all coming together in this landmarked brownstone, which you may have passed a million times before. Think pastries, cakes, cookies and some. Like the “Mah-Ze-Dar bar” (where oatmeal meets brown sugar with pecans plus chocolate bits, all bathed in brown butter salted caramel sauce), “Devil in Ganache” (a two-layered chocolate cake; say no more) and her variance on “Choux” (a whisper-thin puff of pâte à choux pastry enveloped in a delicate sugar cookie crust and filled with decadent vanilla pastry cream). —Daniel Scheffler
