Judy Rosenberg didn’t set out to be an award-winning chef or an NPR-lauded cookbook author. The owner of Rosie’s Bakery found her calling in 1974 after attending art school and gobbling desserts at some of New York’s finest bakeries, becoming inspired to forge her own batch of sweets. When the staff of a local cheesecake shop got hooked on her homemade cookies, she knew she’d found a recipe for success. Since then, she’s expanded her culinary repertoire to include fudge-nut brownies, bavarian-cream fruit tarts, and more than 14 types of muffins and scones.

Each recipe teems with real, old-fashioned ingredients, such as butter, cream, sugar, and edible monocles. Cakes come in circular layers and rectangular sheets, boasting flavors such as carrot and mocha. Filled with snickerdoodles and chocolate-chip rounds, the cookie lineup conjures more childhood memories than a psychiatrist who rides to work in an ice-cream truck.

Lauded by Daily Candy for accommodating raw and vegan diners, Prana Restaurant balances native temperatures with mouthwatering flavors in organic and gluten-free dishes. After being greeted by fresh hair streaming through wide-flung windows, diners dip flora-favoring taste buds into garlic, veggie, or fig balsamic pizza on naan crust ($10). Chefs trade off gluten-rich pasta for ribbons of zucchini in the pesto primavera entree, served raw or slightly warm with spinach, a seasonal garden medley, and almond-and-cashew cream sauce ($16). Chard leaves or chia-seed shells trump humdrum tortillas in a lunchtime burrito that bulges to bursting with vegetables, beans, guacamole, sour cream, and salsa ($12). Refuel after fatigue-inducing feasts or all-night model-UN deliberations by chugging a coconut-rich SuperCharger smoothie tinged with cacao, dates, and cashews ($9.75).

Pair up with a pal or loved one for an escape to the quaint and sunny L'Aroma Café, where skilled baristas steep imported teas and steam espressos with the level of care seen among ex-plumbers in belt shops. Glass-top tables fog up under mugs of freshly brewed drip coffee and espresso concoctions, and teas sourced from Sri Lanka fill the air with scents of jasmine, spiced chai, and mango. Other beverages range from hot chocolate and chai lattes to zesty apple cider, and L'Aroma can serve any coffee drink on ice, decaffeinated, or in a miniature replica of the local water tower. Fresh pastries and other desserts beckon tongues from behind the café's glass counter. French macaroons wave-down taste buds with buttercream icing and tea bread spells out invites with apricots and pecans.

Tabrizi Bakery

Visitors to Tabrizi Bakery are in for a rare treat, or treats, as the case may be. Owner Mohammad Tahmili was born in Tabriz, and grew up in Tehran, all the while immersed in the family business: baking. Today at his own bakery, Mohammad sticks to family recipes passed down through many generations, giving visitors a chance to try Iranian baked goods they may never have heard of before. For example, clover-shaped cookies––called "nokodi"––owe their melt-in-your-mouth texture to chic pea flour, while baklava gets a Persian-style twist with a filling made of pistachios, honey syrup, and rosewater. There's traditional Greek baklava too, alongside small, soft, honey-dipped pastries known as "bami" and decadent pastries such as cream puffs, napoleons, and feather-light sponge cakes. Also on display is a selection of imported groceries, from specialty oils and nuts, to packages of Turkish delight candy. The bakery also uses fresh cream to create from-scratch cakes, perfect those celebrating a special event, whether it be a birthday, an anniversary, a wedding, or a forgiven library fine.
