chocolate chip cookies

Where can you buy the best chocolate chip cookies in Boston/Cambridge? Homemade is not a choice, because of my broken oven.

It seems like a simple dessert to bake, but I've had plenty of dry, tasteless cookies, or ones that were cloyingly sweet.

A great article in today's New York Times says that the better bakeries rest the dough for 36 hours after mixing it, to allow the viscous eggs to fully soak into the flour. Are there any Boston bakeries or restaurants that take that trouble?

If you could eat just one chocolate chip cookie -- must be from an area bakery or store -- before you died, which one would it be?
