In an era in which restaurant chains focus-group everything to manufacture a sense of Grandma, Beverly's Best is hominess with a brownie. The macaroons are chocolate-dipped coconut dreams: rich, light and fluffy, a guaranteed late-night craving. The holiday-themed sugar cookies — haunted houses, Christmas trees —are beautifully, deliciously, detailed works of art. And chocolate-chip cookies fresh out of the oven (co-owner Carmela Cella's admitted favorite) will make you discard Mrs. Field's cookies as if they were a mere carton of Chips Ahoy!
