Sugar Rush

Your daily dose of something sweet.

Petrossian's croissants are quickly moving up my list of favorite croissants in New York City. The plain croissants are wonderful, but later in the morning I often crave something a notch sweeter and a bit more exciting. Usher in their pistachio croissant smothered in marzipan, topped with apricot preserves, and sprinkled with crushed pistachios. One would be right to claim that this croissant teeters on the verge of overkill, but luckily it falls on the side of restraint. Delicate and full of flavor, it's also a gorgeous sight. This is a winner.
