Yesterday, we presented some nice dessert porn, in the form of a gorgeous slideshow of the citys top Easter treats. Today brings us an even more prurient image: the 80-pound, three-foot-high chocolate egg created by Dominique Ansel of Daniel to celebrate Easter. Sadly, the brown behemoth wont be available for eating anytime soon. You could eat it, though; its very good, the chef says. Its all Valrhona chocolate. I just decided to make it one day. I told Daniel, I have a small egg here. He saw it and said, Oh, shit! He loves it. The egg will be on display through next week in Daniels lobby.
