Chocolate Cupcakes, Done Just Right, at Ciao for Now

Chocolate cupcakes at Ciao for Now in the East Village are something special, intensely chocolaty but not too sweet, says curranthound, who ranks them well ahead of better-known cupcake makers Magnolia and Billy’s.

In other bakery news, Sweet Melissa in Soho has closed. Its original Brooklyn shop remains in business, turning out hound-endorsed chocolate mousse cake, double chocolate-cherry cookies and other treats.
