  • a
  • 8

Hi chowhounds - I need help. I live across the river in Northern New Jersey and travel to Manhattan quite a bit for shows, restaurants, etc. However, I having a hard time finding bakeries that sells brioche. I think Payard sells them, but I'd like to know of other places. I prefer not to go downtown, 30's to the 70's would be OK. Thanks for your help. Oh, yes, where is the Little Red Hen bakery?

    how 'bout Fauchon 56th & Park

    1. Any of the branches of Le Pain Quotidien (they are all over the city) will sell you a very nice small brioche (not a loaf, just a "single serving" size.) Their baguettes are excellent too, in my opinion some of the best in the city.

      The locations are:
      1131 Madison Avenue - New York, NY 10028 (between 84th and 85th street) - Phone: (212) 327 49 00

      1336 First Avenue - New York, NY 10021 (between East 71st and 72nd street) - Phone: (212) 717 4800

      833 Lexington Avenue - New York, NY 10021 (between 63rd and 64th street) - Phone: (212) 755 5810

      50 West 72nd Street - New York, NY 10023 (between Colombus & Central park West) - Phone: (212) 712 9700

      38 East 19th Street at ABC Carpet & Home (between Broadway & Park Ave) - Phone: (212) 673 7900

      100 Grand Street - New York, NY 10013 (near corner of Mercer Street) - Phone: (212) 625 9009

      1. the excellent little red hen is on the east side of second ave between 85th and 86 street

        1. Although I haven't had one in years, I remember the brioches at Chez Laurence patisserie (Madison/38th) being really good.

          And Balthazar bakery makes nice orange-flavor brioches that are available at other outlets around town (such as the Corrado bakery in the Grand Central Station food hall).

          1. FAIRWAY MARKET ON BRODWAY OR GRACES OR AGATHA VALENTINA
