The financier at La Bergamote in Chelsea, with its apricot-glazed top and line of studded blueberries, is far from plain and simple. But when you're craving that classic French almond flour-based sweet but looking for something a little different, La Bergamote's fruited versions are worth a visit. Fine chopped almonds make their way into each lightly sweetened bite, along with that intoxicating scent of browned butter. At $2.65 each, the financiers also come in raspberry and mandarin orange.
