Where can I get the best croissant in New York?
Ceci-Cela's are definitely great.
Ceci-CelaSpring St (Between Lafayette Street and Mulberry Street)
Here's a croissant tip: buy almost any descent croissant and microwave it for 10 seconds.
I find that warmth beats recipe, and I live near Claude. (I'd rather eat a warm one from Hudson Bagel on Hudson Street than a cold one from Claude.)
Patisserie Claude or La Bergamote
Is it likely that all this will change after the trans-fat ban takes effect?
No. Croissants are made with butter, which (strangely enough) hasn't been targeted in the latest anti-fat health craze.
... and for this i am extremely thankful. phew!!! btw, i like your username, NAtiveNewYorker
Go for Patisserie Claude's or possibly Silver Moon Bakery's.
Patisserie Claude, definitely. We're huge converts.
i'm pretty sure claude's is the best croissant anywhere outside of france. its really a struggle to limit the amount of croissants you eat there.
To make it easy for you, in case you're in a hurry, Claude's on 4th and Barrow.
