      Balthazar's palmier is almost always a buy for us when we're in the area.

              too true @FoodDabbler!! i guess the only solution to the problem is that if i choose to eat them in NYC, i must remember to walk as much as i did when i ate them in paris!!

                You can achieve slimhip nirvana simply by walking from Silver Moon to Balthazar.
