Dessert-inspired cream cheese café Becky's Bites is now open in the East Village

Invent your perfect Magnum ice cream bar at a seasonal pop-up in SoHo.

There is nothing like the holidays to put my sweet tooth into overdrive. And so I recently had the oh-so-sweet opportunity to indulge in a variety of treats from Financier Patissiere, the French Patisserie chain in New York. The bakery/café offers a number of holiday yule log desserts, both traditional (chocolate, Grand Marnier, praline and coffee) and “modern” (a dark chocolate, raspberry and pistachio mousse sitting atop a pistachio biscuit and finished off with chocolate lady fingers and chocolate glaze).

Being invited out for lunch at one of Daniel Boulud’s restaurants is always a treat…despite chaotic deadlines and endless meetings in the office, every editor manages to sneak away for such an invite, and I admit I was looking forward to experiencing the newest jewel in Boulud’s restaurant crown, Boulud Sud.
