NYC Chocolate Chip Cookies, Ranked

I eat a lot of sugar. You should know this about me.
  1. 1.
    Levain Bakery
    This is not up for debate.
  2. 2.
    Maman
    Make sure to ask the owner (Elisa!) to warm it up in the oven.
  3. 3.
    El Rey
    My move is to take the cookie and dunk it into the brownie-batter hot chocolate. (I'm going to die young.)
  4. 4.
    Jacques Torres
    Extra rich and chocolate-y.
  5. 5.
    Blue Ribbon Bakery Market
    It's more of a light everyday cookie -- thin and crispy.
  6. 6.
    Birdbath/City Bakery
    I want to rank it higher, but it's often burnt. Quality control, people!
  7. 7.
    Ovenly
    Available at most coffee shops (and it's the McNally Jackson cookie of choice). Surprisingly vegan, which means you should eat two.
  8. 8.
    The Smile
    For all of you strange creatures who don't like the taste of pure sugar, this one has sea salt on top.
  9. 9.
    Dominique Ansel Bakery
    A shot made out of a warm cookie that's filled with vanilla milk. Boom.
  10. 10.
    Amy's Bread
    Perfect lunch: grilled cheese from Murray's (next door) followed by Amy's cookies!
  11. 11.
    Culture
    It'll make you forget you're in midtown.
