I had to go here for breakfast every morning I was in New York. I would walk to the Time Warner building and take the escalator up to the bakery. The croissants, the macaroons, and even the sandwiches did not disappoint. It can get a little pricey (it is French), but you should enjoy it while in New York.

I was like a kid in a candy store when I approached the counter and display case at Bouchon! Everything was absolutely gorgeous and meticulously put together. Cookies, macarons, tarts, eclairs, quiches....even Foie Gras Doggie Treats!
We ordered a selection of Macarons (Chocolate, Pistachio, Caramel, and Coconut), Pain au Trois Chocolat, and Espressos. I have no shame when I say I dove right into each of the pastries, marveling at the complex flavors of each item I bit into The Pain was so delish with the chocolate flavors--crisp, rich...yum. And the Macarons-OH MY!!!! Lightly crisp exterior yet chewy in the inside.....with the "feet" that all good macarons should have. Hands down, my favorite two flavors were the caramel and coconut...TO DIE FOR! The caramel was so rich and for lack of better description, it was "caramel-y". The coconut had the PERFECT flavor that didn't have that imitation coconut taste that many pastries have.
And the whole time I kept on saying to myself, "If this is how his pastries taste, think of how AMAZING the French Laundry would be!" One day....sigh......
