The Post Restaurant, no longer in business in New York, made a delicious 3 layer 
white coconut cake that I would love to have the recipe. Made, I am sure with all 
fresh ingredients. Is it “spritzed” to get moist?

Hello Eric,

I cannot find anything about a  "Post Restaurant" in NYC.

However, I did find an upscale restaurant in NYC called : "The Post House," at 28 E 63rd St. Now closed.

I found several mentions of their coconut layer cake, which was described this way on their menu at: Foursquare

Coconut Cake with Coconut Sorbet
Layered coconut cake topped with fresh coconut shavings, served with coconut sorbet and mango passion sauce

I found a review that said: Dessert was outrageous and the best dessert was the coconut cake with coconut sorbet.

I could not find a recipe or a more detailed description of the cake.

I will post this for reader input. Perhaps someone can tell us more about it.

Dear Phaedrus 

The address for the Post Restaurant was 28 E 63rd Street and the chef who would not share 
was Mr Hussein Kkanloo. 

Thank you for your help. 


Hello Eric,

Ok, that is the address of the old "Post House" restaurant in the Lowell Hotel. The actual name of it was "The Post House" rather than just "The Post." No luck with the recipe. I cannot find any mention of a NYC chef named "Hussein Kkanloo" or common variants of that name.
