Best Midtown Sweets: 2011 Readers’ Poll

It’s time for the 2011 Midtown Lunch Readers’ Poll. Your nominations are in, and between now and the end of the year we’ll be asking all of you to vote for the best Midtown Lunches in a whole range of categories. You can only vote once per category (so choose wisely), and official results will be posted after the new year.

A lot’s changed sweets-wise since last year’s polls; Best Cupcake Robicelli’s can no longer be found, and Best Dessert Truck Wafels & Dinges has to constantly watch out for Alpha. But that doesn’t mean we went without an afternoon sugar fix! Flex Donuts brought some delicious doughnuts twice, Donna Bell’s opened on the West Side, Culture Espresso has your back with doughnuts from Dough and homemade chocolate chip cookies fresh out of the oven at 3pm, Bouchon expanded to Rock Center, and even K-Town’s dessert front improved with Paris Baguette. Here are the nominees for best afternoon sugar rush:

Vote for your favorite after the jump…

  • I don’t think anything beats Bouchon’s Fudgetaboutit

  • Ok, I totally can’t bitch, because I didn’t nominate anyone to be included in the list when the calls for nominations were made.
    But my favorite sweets in midtown are: Two Little Red Hens cupcake from Dean and Deluca, Robicelli’s cupcakes from Joe the Art of Coffee or Lily O’Brien’s, Jacques Torres chocolate from the Rock Center concourse, and Tres Leche donuts from Doughnut Plant at Dean and Deluca or Snack Box.
