Located in the lower-level concourse as part of the recently expanded Plaza Food Hall, the beloved Madison Avenue bakery is ushering in a new era, opening a New York City outpost beyond their Upper East Side flagship store. The Plaza Food Hall location brings William Greenberg Desserts celebrated creations to a new generation of New Yorkers and visitors: creations like their famous black and white cookies, called the best in the city by New York Magazine, decadent brownies recently immortalized on AMC’s Mad Men and much more.
