        I heard their pastries are not as good as their bread? will try the eclairs. There are so many place that sells eclairs but so hard to find a good one.
        As for bread, I still prefer bread from Bien cuit or Pain D'Avignon.

          I agree re: their pastry, but do you know of other places in Midtown that has pistachio eclairs?

          1. re: ipsedixit

            I thought I saw one in Lady M...though it could have been green tea flavor. Pomme Palais on 51st has pistachio eclairs for sure.

                        there are like 10 locations in the city.

                          I guess I need to get out more ...

                            You are not missing out much....when it comes to French desserts in NYC...

                1. re: Monica

                  The green eclair at Lady M is green tea and very good.

                2. re: ipsedixit

                  doesn't Francois Payard have pistachio raspberry eclairs?

            2. I have been waiting and waiting!!!! I'll be there next weekend for sure.

              1. Their tumeric hazelnut bread and olive buns get me every time... Entire hazelnuts in the bread and so many delicious olives in the bun its more like olives held together by chewy dough.....

                1. Can't wait to check it out. Though having Maison Kayser and Lady M so close to my office is dangerous!
