Heidi’s House has a solid, standard menu, great wine options, and some of the friendliest service in the city, but the reason we’re going back? Heidi’s chocolate souffle.

Souff-yay!

Our previous experience with souffles in NYC run around $12 or more for a few tiny bites of decent chocolate. Not at Heidi’s House. This souffle was baked when ordered [trust me, I touched the ceramic bowl] and huge. Jon stopped when we were half-way through [from the kindness of his manly heart] and left the rest to me. The outer layer was rich, semi-sweet, and had a perfect baked texture without being overly crisp. The middle, though.. oh the middle.. was like drinking pure, melted dark-chocolate Belgian fudge. The potential for chocolate overload was balanced, however, with a homemade touch: sea salt crystals around the outside. The best bites were a combination of melted sweet inside with the salted, scraped-from-the-bowl baked outside. Simple, but outstanding.
