I recently saw this Thrillist article for "The 10 Things You Didn't Know" about the Black and White Cookie. First being, it's not actually a cookie, it's a "drop cake". Mind. Blown. Then it got me thinking, "man, I haven't had a Black and White Cookie Drop Cake in a while". So, I headed to Zaro's Bakery, famous for their B&Ws. And so, I tried one of their Black and White Cookies for the first time (how disappointed would you be if that's not even what I got?).

I can't vouch for all Zaro's locations, but I must alert everyone about Zaro's at Grand Central Terminal, and I assume the food is the same at all locations. When I got off the train, I noticed the knishes, potato and spinach, and they looked like a perfect combination of traditional ethnic and continental gourmet, 2 qualities for which NYC is famous. On the way back, I made a point of buying some of these knishes, and I found the quality of taste and texture exactly like the look:traditional NYC knishes and also like a fancy French pastry. Delicious! Excellent!They were $3.50, but definitely worth it. I've tried other foods there and they were all very good. But I must tell everyone about the knishes.

Zaros used to make a decent lentil soup. It has been discontinued. I tried their black been instead. It is not good. It is more like black bean broth. The service also stinks. The counter staff is very unfriendly, even if you are a regular customer. You can make it all the way to the cashier without any of the counter staff making eye contact or taking you order. I will find another lunch spot or make my own soup.

Usually, Zaro's is efficient, but this place in the morning is the worst. The servers have no idea what's going on and it takes them forever to do anything. I got what I thought was a bagel with lox spread and when I got to work, it was just a bagel - no spread. I had to go back and very little in terms of an apology or recompense. Not going here again, unless they improve significantly.

Est time for delivery was 15-30 mins. An hour later I received cold soup and a warm sprite. I wish I could at least say the soup was good however unfortunately not... very bland and small for the price.
