Chocolate Cake at Formento's: Sweet of the Week

Chocolate Cake at Formento’s:

Chocolate cake, more so than perhaps any other dessert, can be a bit of a double-edged sword for a dessert menu. On one hand, you’ve got the irresistible nostalgia factor tugging your heart strings towards it, enrobing your soul in comfort and frosting. But on the other hand, such an iconic and timeless classic inevitably sets a very high bar in terms of emotional expectations. Like chocolate chip cookies and banana splits, chocolate cake is a dessert tradition we’re all familiar with, and it’s something we all have expectations for. It may seem simple, but a good chocolate cake can be mighty hard to pull off. This is why Formento’s deserves major kudos for not only pulling off a successful chocolate cake, but for serving what very well may be the single best chocolate cake in Chicago…………CONTINUE:  
Chicago is a city with a sweet tooth, packed with unique pastries and desserts in every neighborhood restaurant and bakery for dining and snacking in Chicago. I’m a guy with a sweet tooth, so each week I’ll report on a different dessert you need to try. I mean, I’ll eat more than one dessert of course, but only one standout confection gets a shout out.
