Long before he ever conceived of the viral dessert of our times, the cronut, Dominque Ansel had planned a series of pastry collaborations with six of his favorite pastry chefs. Up first: Michael Laiskonis and this gorgeous chocolate dessert.
Dominique Ansel bakery unveiled their doughnut-croissant hybrid last Friday, and it's been selling out by noon in the days since. Here it is.
After six years of writing about a sweet a day in New York, it's time for me to say farewell to the Sugar Rush beat. Looking back are the journey, here are ten of the sweets I'll never forget.
When the seasons change or a holiday is approaching, you can count on Dominique Ansel to debut some beautiful new creations for his bakery. You can also bet that there will be at least one specialty religieuse that's artfully decorated to match the occasion.
Dominique Ansel Bakery just launched a new collection of spring sweets this week, and of course, just for you, we tried every single new item.
It's been a great year for sandwiches in this city. We found new loves in pastrami and patty melts. We celebrated grilled cheese in all its oozy forms. We even hacked a few sandwiches of our own. Here are 30 standout sandwiches we had this year.
Dominique's Lemon Bichon ($3.75) is like an apple turnover with fresh lemon curd in place of apples.
It's never too early for Halloween treats...especially if they're coming from the kitchens of Dominique Ansel Bakery. Split this Marshmallow Apple ($11.50) right down the middle and a golden salted caramel oozes out from the core.
A cake as beautiful as it is delicious. Tiny, housemade lemon marshmallows dot the exterior of this Provence Cake ($5.75) from Dominique Ansel Bakery.
A really good chicken sandwich can be hard to find; so many are dry or stringy or downright boring. But great chicken—juicy, flavorful, maybe with some crisp skin in the mix—is perfect sandwich fodder. You can't really beat fried chicken on a bun, but it's just as good grilled and stacked with avocado, roasted and slicked with fat...or, well, we'll let this list of chicken sandwich stars speak for itself.
Our lives changed the day we decided to stick some gelato into a kouign amann from two great Soho spots a five minute walk away. It got us thinking: what other great sandwiches could we make around town? And who says an ice cream sandwich must be limited to cookie plus ice cream?
With "elevated" versions of childhood classics everywhere these days, it's no surprise there are plenty of great ice cream sandwiches around. Which ones are really worth your money? We gathered some old friends and our new favorites for the ice cream sandwiches you shouldn't miss.
Stop by Dominique Ansel Bakery before Wednesday and find this holiday take on the Religieuse. It's called the Uncle Sam ($6), a two-tiered cream puff outfitted in a star-studded top hat of vanilla marshmallows.
A visit from Osteria Morini's Michael White prompted an incredible ice cream sandwich discovery. The bottom line: French pastry + Italian ice cream = crazy delicious.
My usual visits to Dominique Ansel Bakery consist of pastry followed by cake followed by ice cream. That is, until I discovered the sandwiches.
Just for Mother's Day weekend, Dominique Ansel Bakery is offering a Cheese Crate Berry Crumble. It's one magnificent dessert coupling tender brioche (housemade of course) bread pudding layered with buttery almond-topped crumble and a collection of ripe berries. All my favorite things rolled into one? Yes please.
I don't mind taking in tourists at all—I love showing them the best my city has to offer—but it can be a challenge to bring them to just the right places. If I'm eating out with a friend who lives here I don't mind taking a chance on something new, but I want my guest's experience to be perfect. Here's a great way to spend an afternoon with your guest walking and eating around the West Village and Soho. And if you're visiting town, feel free to take this walk without a guide. You can do so in the comfort that you'll be eating just like a real New Yorker.
One of the things I love most about Dominique Ansel Bakery is that there is always something new to try, be it an ice cream flavor, pastry, or in this case, the Ruby Charlotte ($5.25). Airy light raspberry mousse comes flanked by a duo of housemade lady fingers, delicate and perfect for the the season. It's paired with shards of white chocolate and fresh raspberries, each one hand-piped with raspberry jam (talk about attention to detail).
