cynthias Jun 4, 2012 10:11 AM

Help! I used Patachou in the past and it was fantastic!!! they are closed on sundays and the event I need it for is then. Anyone tried croque en bouche and loved anywhere else? I want the best in the city.( or 2nd best if Patachou was the best)

    Rabies is where I would go. But I don't have specific experience with croquembouche. Everything else I've had there over the years has been top notch, if that's worth anything...

        Ha - feels like a classic auto-correct typo for Rahier...

        We had our wedding croquembouche from Dessert Trends. Loved it.

          Hahaha! I was on my iPad. Sorry! Yes, it was the auto-correct, and I didn't notice it. Paying attention to the letters as I typed, instead.

              Call dessert trends to make sure ... my impression, granted from some years ago, is that they only make them for weddings, and even then, larger weddings (ie/ 100+servings).

        Patisserie La Cigogne is also pretty good:

          I second La Cicogne and if you call, they'll set up a time for you to taste. 3 types of cream: vanilla, chocolate, and Grand Marnier-flavoured.
