I don’t know about you ladies but once a month I fiend for chocolate like a crack-head for the pipe. And today, thank my lucky stars, I found a fabulous fix. At $6 per hit...it was money well spent! I had the Chocolate Lasagna at XS located in midtown (a block down from Penn Station).
About the yumminess--It's a triple layer moist chocolate cake, with layers of white and chocolate mousse in between the cake layers and topped with a dark chocolate granache. And did I mention? They drizzle it with chocolate sauce and serve it with a swirl of whipped cream and a fresh strawberry.
You must be in a “chocolate mode” or the intense richness will be too much. I intended to only eat half but found my self licking the plastic container in which it came wondering…should I go back for another piece?
Word on the Street: If it's your birthday, you may be entitled to 'a hook-up' of extra berries and more chocolate sauce.
Two Words: Flippin’ Amazing!
Be warned. The service isn’t so good. The waitresses are grumpy and rarely smile. Service is slow. I try to cut them some slack. Hell, if I had to hump 2 and 3 flights of stairs to fetch extra napkins and ketchup, I wouldn't be so pleasant either.
What’s great is they have free wireless access and really good food--makes up for the not so good service.
All different types of sushi, yummy noodle dishes, and the sausage quiche rocks.
