The sweets at Petrossian—cakes, pastries, cookies—blow me away time after time. There are only few New York bakeries that never fail to impress, and this is one them. But it's rarely the first place that comes to mind when people crave a little something sweet. We Sugar Rush'ed the Pistachio Croissant and Blackberry-Almond Danish last year, and today we bring you at taste of their Blueberry Tart ($7.50). The tart shell is the highlight of this tart, and nothing short of perfect: just browned enough, at the finest intersection of crisp and flaky. It's not as buttery as one would except, but breaks into shards with each forkful. A filling of marzipan and an overflowing bounty of fresh blueberries—a slight glaze for shine, candied orange, and a shake of powdered sugar. Delicious.
