Welcome back Ruby et Violette!

So I have yet to meet the person that dislikes cookies and I hope I never do.

I saw on Eater yesterday that Ruby et Violette was reopening and I just happened to be in Hell's Kitchen for work so I ran over on my lunch break.

The space is small and narrow but they have a few cute tables for you to sit at and the white decor makes the space feel a little bigger than it is.

I walked in about 12:00 and was cheerily greeted by all the women behind the counter.

I had no idea what kind of cookie I wanted...which was perfect because they were doing a cookie tasting!!!

Okay free cookies! This already the best day ever!

I took a bite of the Homerun which was a chocolate based cookie with Baby Ruth candy bar chunks and caramel apparently imported from Italy.

This was good gut very sweet. A little too much for me. The other two I ended up tasting though I ended up buying.

The first one was called the Perfect cookie.

Why perfect? Because it really is the perfect balance of semi-sweet chocolate and cookie dough in a semi-cripy crust gooey center that might make it the most perfect chocolate chip cookie.

Don't get me wrong- I love Levain but sometimes it's just to big - and City Bakery? A little too crispy for my tastes. This fell right between.

The other one was a new one they were trying out- the camel popcorn cookie. This was also very good.

I was worried about the Carmel drizzeled popcorn getting
hard through the baking process bu it didn't . It tasted kind of like a salty Carmel Frappocino to me (in other words pretty freaking awesome)

The last one though was my favorite- the Marshmallow.

This little guy was so chewy and sticky that he literally got stuck inside the bottom of my bag.

Um Yeah...This is basically a perfect with marshmallow inside..Need I say more? One of the best cookies I have ever had. Chewy, moist, gooey, rich all of it!

I loved this place. They also have ice cream which is whatever the flavor is and then the cookie dough mixed in.

For example the espresso is espresso ice cream with espresso cookies dough batter mixed in. The pistachio is pistachio ice cream with perfect cookie dough mixed in. This place is like a dream come true for ice cream and cookie lovers!!!

If only I lived closer!

The staff were super friendly ands after my disappointment at Insomnia this was a nice surprise. Worth the walk over to 10th Avenue- check them out. Really nice little delights!
