  1. I have enjoyed the buche from Marquet - in Village (13th nr University, I believe) or on Smith Street in Cobble Hill in past years. If you live in Brooklyn, id try that location first - its where they bake.

    1. How about Payard Patisserie on Lex between 73rd & 74th streets? Really has some stunning looking baked goods!

        Beware, Payard gets TONS of orders during the X'mas season. Last year, my order for the bouche de noel was "lost" when I went to pick it up. The place was jam-packed with people, and François was really stressed out, yelling into his walkie-talkie. Extras were made for emergencies so I got one anyway. Unfortunately, maybe because of the holiday rush, the bouche was not very good at all.
