"Open since the 1940s, William Greenberg Desserts is one of the city's most distinguished pastry shops, specializing in such New Yorkiana as black-and-white cookies, fruit tarts, and the cinnamon buns called schnecken. Their cream cheese cheesecake, a New York phenomenon if ever there were one, is spectacularly good." --Eater "Don't be put off by the prime Madison Avenue address, this is an old-school kosher bakery, with plastic-wrapped baking trays providing the display, and service that's refreshingly opinionated and direct. William Greenberg's Black & White is one of the best in town, and their Sticky Bun is an equally first-rate showing in its category." --Gothamist "After a chocolate bar, pecan brownies from William Greenberg Desserts are the next best cocoa-flavored treat." --Town & Country "This massive slab [of rainbow cake] is an instant mood elevator with its dense vanilla cake and butter cream frosting. Eat one layer at a time." --Eater
