The Serious Eats Team 20 comments

In honor of Serious Eats Bakery Week, we set out to answer a question that's been on our mind for ages: what's the best baguette in New York? Because for every good baguette, there are dozens of disappointments. Tough, mouth-hurting crusts or doughy, spongy insides.

[Photo: Kathy YL Chan] This Lemon-Raspberry Cake ($4.50), with cheery yellows, greens and pinks, speaks summer in color. A pretty sight indeed. Whimsical pipes of lightly torched meringue sit over layers of bold and airy pistachio sponge cake alternating... More
