It's Monday afternoon, and you've made it through your first salad lunch of the week. But admit it, your diet endurance is starting to wane and those treats that the receptionist brought in are starting to look even more delicious than they did this morning. So if you're trying to get back on the bandwagon, we warn you: Do yourself a favor and read no further; Ater writing this article, today's diet is a wash. Expanding upon its widely beloved offering, The Best Chocolate Cake in the World, Portuguese café ChocoBolo (with existing locations in Soho, the UES, and Dumbo) is now open in the UWS and serving up some even more delectable treats. The new specialty chocolate cakes include Orange Truffle, Pistachio, Rich Flourless, and Triple Chocolate Cheesecake... we know, it's hard to hear and even harder to resist. And thought you were at least off the temptation hook for breakfast? Think again. Choco Bolo offers brewed Counter Culture Coffee, as well as fresh baked croissants and muffins. Can you spell diet fail?
