Under the supervision of the Phoenix Vaad Hakashruth, Karsh bakes its decadently frosted cakes, pull-apart breads, and pretty pastries on-site. The full-line bakery features Old World ingredients in all its offerings. Try the raisin twist ($6) for a tasty morning starter, or the square challah ($4.50), which fries up nicely for french-toast breakfasts with Jeremy Piven. On the sweeter side, cheesecakes ($1.75–$33.60), brownies ($1.80–$3.95), éclairs ($3.95), and turnovers ($2.75) are like Febreeze for your stomach, quickly eliminating the leftover residue of a dull day's unpleasantries. New York expats can savor a taste of the motherland with Karsh's delicious black-and-white cookies ($3.25), along with bobkas ($11), hamentashen ($2.15–$2.35), rugalach ($12.90/lb), kuchens ($12.50), and other Yiddish yummies.
Robeks uses the freshest ingredients to craft made-to-order drinks and eats that will make you feel guilt-free about grabbing a quick bite. Join the berry party with berry smoothies such as the Banzai Blueberry, Strawnana Berry, and Cranberry Quest, all of which pulverize fruit together with all-natural juice, non-fat yogurt or sherbet, and ice ($3.49 junior, $4.49 regular, $5.49 large). For more pulchritudinous pulverized pulp, energize your day with power smoothies, including the Cardio Cooler (with a base of passion fruit and mango juice), which blend juices, non-fat yogurt or sherbets, soy or whey protein, and vitamin boosters ($5.29 regular, $6.29 large) into an elixir that that will revitalize even the most workout-withered body. Bites include protein-packed Kim & Scott's Gourmet Pretzels such as tomato parmesan or spinach feta ($2.49 each), and the hair-raising goodness of Lenny & Larry's power muffins or cookies with flavors such as oatmeal raisin, chocolate chip, lemon poppyseed, and more ($1.99 each).
