Well, besides the National Association of Flan Producers. You don’t want to mess with Big Flan. Here are my top 5 picks for best chocolate cakes in New York City. Did I miss a good one? Let me know in the comments section. You know we have a comments section, right?
Black Hound’s Flourless Chocolate Cake
I guess they had to leave out the flour to put all that chocolate in there. They cover their intensely chocolately cake in a bittersweet chocolate ganache then dust it with bittersweet chocolate shavings around the sides. $40 for 6 inch cake.

Serendipity 3′s Chocolate Blackout Cake
