In a world filled with trendy chocolate mousse cakes, chocolate towers, chocolate bombes, molten chocolate tortes and God only knows what else, sometimes it's nice to revisit a forgotten friend: old-fashioned chocolate fudge cake. DaCapo's [1141 East 11th Street, (713)869-9141] restores this all-American favorite to its rightful place of honor. Gooey, fudgy frosting is slathered on moist chocolate cake sinful without being decadent ($2.99 a slice, $24.95 for a whole cake). For a quick flashback to childhood, enjoy a slice with a tall glass of ice-cold milk.
