Bouchon Bakery

Bouchon Bakery

New York, NY 10019-1158

We went to Bouchon Bakery on our last day in New York. We planned on having a low-key day, have an early dinner, go to sleep early, and rise early for the drive back to Toronto. The day was not low-key as we wanted to see and do more, we ended up running around. Although, if you heard this story from Howard, he would blame it on the shoes. Well, perhaps I was a tad overzealous about getting this one pair of shoes. But then again, Howard ended up getting shoes on our last day too.

I'm going off-track there. Back to the wonderful Bouchon Bakery at the Time Warner Center. Bouchon was on the third floor and if you chose to sit in, you were in for a great view of Columbus Circle. Happy patrons enjoying their desserts:

This is the kitchen window for the staff to pick-up the orders:

And, this is what you see if you're getting the baked goods to go:
Just look at the Brioche a Tete and Sugar Pies! The Chocolate Almond Croissant, Chocolate Brioche, Banana Nut Muffin, and Raspberry Almond Croissants!

I decided we had to try the namesake - chocolate bouchons! One for Howard and one for me.
Thomas Keller, we tip our hats to you!

While we didn't sit in, we ate the bouchons overlooking the balcony on the second floor. Our last day of the week. =(

PS: If you were wondering what a bouchon is, they're small brownie-like treats that are named for their shape - a cork. Bouchon Bakery includes chocolate chips in the batter and dusts them with confectioner's sugar.
