Signature Chocolate Chip | New York City
On my last visit to NYC, DŌ Cookie Dough Confections was on my must-try list. I had heard about it, watched a story on the TODAY Show, ogled their Instagram for months... I was GOING to try this dough.
Their neon says it best, “dreams dough come true!” This safe-to-eat dough was my idea of a perfect bite. Chip-to-dough ratio? On point. Sweet vs. salty? Totally balanced. The signature chocolate chip was classic in every way. I am in love.
A word of warning - it was RICH. Remember how you used to leave a considerable amount of cookie dough in the mixing bowl and claimed you “couldn’t get it to scrape off” with a spatula? And then do you remember proceeding to miraculously scrape it off and eat every bite? Was that just me? When I baked cookies last week? Okay... anyway! Eating a scoop of DŌ is just like that. It tastes exactly the same and, if you’re not careful, can feel exactly the same, too. I had one scoop and it was more than enough. But if you’re brave - go for that triple scoop! Try every flavor. Carpe diem!
THE COOKIE TOUR STOP
DŌ is located in Greenwich Village and, like most NYC Cookie Tour stops, it’s a tiny little store. It’s also a very cute little store! It rivals my hometown favorite for a happy interior, so you know I lit up when I walked in. It’s a tight squeeze and there will likely be a line when you arrive. We had the luckiest trip - there weren’t long lines for any of our cookie stops! We waited a few short minutes, selected our scoops, and scooted on out the door. Even if we would’ve had to wait longer, it would have been worth it!
WHILE YOU’RE THERE
Greenwich Village is rife with unique restaurants and local flair. Washington Square Park is just steps away from DŌ, so I recommend walking that way to find a place to sit. You’ll see the arch and cross another must-see off your list while you enjoy your scoop.
I also saw several sandwich boards for some fantastic brunch deals in the area. I’m curious, though, about a sign for a restaurant that had bottomless mimosas for 90 minutes. Is this a thing in New York? Because if someone instituted this rule in OKC my friends would definitely get kicked out. And does the 90 minutes start when you order or when you get your first mimosa? Who’s timing? Do they say “glasses down!!?” Must you drop your champagne flute like it’s a pencil after a standardized test? New Yorkers - if you can help answer these questions, I may go for a 90 minute brunch prior to my next cookie dough stop.
Enough about my brunch questions. Let’s get to those cookie dough stats! Enjoy that fresh-out-of-the-mixer taste, my friends!
