At Petrossian, the best part of this Apple Turnover ($3.75) is the crust. Neat little crimps, crisp to the bite, line the edges; it's a perfect triangle fold dusted in sugar and puffiest at the center. Go early in the mornings for a fresh one, or warm it up in the toaster oven. Inside is a filling of diced apples, just saucy enough, the fruit tender to the bite. (They could, however, afford to go lighter on the cinnamon.) The crust is unusually flaky and makes for very rewarding bites, delicate and thin buttery layers that could easily pass as dessert with scoops of fresh whipped cream.
