I'm meeting a friend TONIGHT who is visiting (from Hawaii) for dinner and would like to bring them a nice "Welcome to NY" gift.
Initial thoughts have ranged from really great black & white cookies to mini pastries from Veneieros to a small NY cheescake. Really excellent chocolate would be a good choice too even though it's not necessarily NYish.
Here's the challenge, can you suggest any place to get such a gift that is in/near Chelsea or Times Square or somewhere very close? If not, and I gotta go out of my way (east village or whereever) what gift and where do you suggest?
For example, when I visited Hawaii, this friend presented with the most awesome choc/mac nut cookies, a lei and other Hawaiianish welcome gifts.
BTW, ever since I've returned I have been getting/ shipping those choc/mac nut cookies here. FYI, for execllent crisper/non chewy choc/mac cookies fan check out http://www.cybersnacks.net/bettys_bes...
Thanks so much! (and sorry for the dupe post - I wasn'
t quite sure exactly where this should go here or general)
