Bouchon Bakery

  • j

I'm going to be near the Time Warner Center after work tonight and was thinking about picking up something for dinner (or at least a pastry) from Bouchon Bakery.

What do we think of this place? Anything that should not be missed?

      Thanks but you were wrong. Closes at 7pm for take-out.

      I really liked the TKO cookie and the lemon tart.

      1. You MUST try the pecan sticky bun. The Nutter Butter is great and the namesake bouchon is wonderful too! I've heard really good things about the tuna nicoise sandwich, but haven't tried it yet myself.

          Tuna Nicoise is simple yet brilliant. A coworker calls it "Jesus on a slice of bread." That might be going a bit too far. Eating it, I thought I could easily reproduce it with the right ingredients (yeasty bread, paper-thin radishes, hard-boiled eggs, aioli, a quality canned tuna etc.) so don't expect it to redefine the tuna sandwich. Still, it's very good, and perfect to take to the park on a day like today.

        2. stopped by on the 4th of July - liked the TKO - good not too sweet chocolate - and also enjoyed the almond chocolate croissant, but the Religieuse was extraordinary.

          1. i think their macaroons are delicious. the pistachio and vanilla and chocolate.

              I love the pistachio macaroons; the vanilla was fairly boring in comparison.

              Also love the TKOs... very rich.

                don't forget the caramel! it's great too
