NYC Weekend: Levain Bakery's Chocolate-filled Brioche

A trip to NYC more often than not results in a trip to Levain Bakery's Manhattan location- mmmmmm!  They are best known for their monstrous cookies, but also have a good selection of other pastries in their store as well.  We picked up one of the chocolate chip brioches - doesn't it look delicious??  It's a long brioche slab (for lack of a better word) folded over tons of little melty chocolate chips, and then dusted with sugar on top.  The result is a rich and delicious chocolate hot dog of sorts, haha.  It was a super tasty way to start off the morning - it'd be waaaaaaay too dangerous for me to have access to this every day, let's just put it that way :o) 

If any of you find yourselves around Levain Bakery, you should obviously pick up their chocolate chip walnut cookie, but don't neglect the other bakery items they have either- you never know, it could be your new favorite item!
