Erin Zimmer Post a comment

Walking into Bien Cuit Bakery, which just opened a couple weeks ago on Smith Street in Boerum Hill, you get that overstimulated-in-a-bakery feeling. Rustic bread loaves the size of Jeep tires in baskets next to long baguettes. Dainty tarts piled with plump cherries and wet, juicy peaches behind the glass case. You're also a little intoxicated by the warm, yeasty baking aroma from the ovens (and want to bottle it up for later). More

Sugar Rush: Apple Tart at Patisserie Claude

Kathy YL Chan 1 comment

At Patisserie Claude, the anatomy of an apple tart includes a crackly butter crust, thin sliced apples, fruit glaze, and a sugar dusted rim. I'm still a firm believer that the patisserie churned our higher-quality products when Claude was... More

Sugar Rush Hannah Howard 2 comments

Photograph by Phoebe This pistachio apricot tart from Bouchon Bakery is more cake than tart, but I'm not complaining. It is supermoist, superdense, and super pistachio-y. Upon being sliced, the "tart" oozes a filling of thick apricot slices. The... More
