We shall end the work week on a high note, a classic. Balthazar's extra-buttery Oat Scone ($3.25), tender and gently studded with currants. The exterior is beautifully golden, with shiny sprinkles of sugar and oats. The ideal size, fitting nicely into the palm of one's hand—simultaneously crumbly and moist, not too sweet, all you really need to bring about a smile.
