Several people I know told me that I should go to Bouchon Bakery, located on the third floor of the Time Warner building at Columbus Circle. I went a first time to try their brioche and decided to go back! The place is pure madness, overcrowded by people trying to indulge on those delicate pastries and sandwiches that they sell.
For sure, it is small. But so good! It is buttery, airy and has a hint of orange flower that balances the flavor. I loved it!
Jodi went for the chocolate chunk cookie.
Yes, I wrote chunk and not chip and clearly, at the first bite, you understand that they are very generous with the chocolate! This cookie is decadent ! Although there is tons of chocolate, it is not too sweet. The cookie itself was chewy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. Pure heaven! I would put it second after City Bakery!
I heard that their almond croissant is fantastic! Another reason to go back!
Enjoy (I did)!
And remember: I just want to eat!
