A stop at Bouchon Bakery

March 30, 2011 § 1 Comment

The Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle is home to some pretty big names in fine-dining. You’ve got Eric Ripert’s Le Bernardin, Masa, and of course, Thomas Keller’s Per Se. What isn’t as well known is Bouchon Bakery, Keller’s small bakery and pastry shop on the third floor, decked out in all its pastries and baguettes. In truth, it’s more of a stand than anything else, where you order and wait for your food before sitting down in an open area in the mall, but I think there’s also a separate area where you can sit down for a longer period of time and order your food via waiter.

Although Laura and I just split the chocolate almond croissant this time (we had a reservation at A Voce soon after), some of my favorite items in the past have been the TKO – Thomas Keller Oreo, the Linzer cookie, and the sticky buns, but I would advise against getting any of the macarons, which can’t compare to those at La Maison du Chocolat.

Flaky, buttery, and not too sweet, the croissant (and coffee) was a perfect pick-me-up in the morning considering how tired Laura and I were still feeling from the previous day. Although I would’ve liked a little more chocolate spread throughout, the almond paste wasn’t artificial tasting and I would definitely get it again.
