After seeing a friend a in SoHo and stopping at some of my favorite shops there (Uniqlo, Evolution NYC – the mecca of science geekdom in NYC) we embarked on a quest for cronuts at Dominique Ansel Bakery that ended not entirely in vain. Cronuts, the croissant doughnut hybrid that swept the nation in buzz fueled fervor a few months ago.
The made to order madeleines were perfect, although the hot chocolate wasn’t entirely that impressive, nor as hot as I would have liked it to be. The chef was in the house being interviewed in the back. With these creations he is on his way to further celebrity chefdom; most likely spending his future away from the kitchen and behind the camera.
