Japanese Pastry and Sake in Hartsdale

While visiting my folks in Hartsdale yesterday I stopped into a Japanese bakery on the corner of Central Ave & Hartsdale Ave (I think) called Parisienne? There are four or five small Japanese stores on the block, a grocery, a fish shop that also sells sushi, the bakery and a new Sake shop. We bought a collection of cold sakes from the extremely helpful and knowledgeable proprietor. She told us they'd only been open three weeks. We tried two of them last night, one extremely dry (she told us it was the most popular sake) which we both really enjoyed, the other quite light and a little sweeter. I'm not that knowledgeable about sake, but I'd return and ask for her advice again. I've been to the pastry shop before, they sell a large collection of pastries, with custard, bean paste and other fillings, but yesterday we tried their rolls stuffed with tuna and corn, a hot dog encased in pastry and some finger sandwiches. All were very good, though the hot dog was by far the best. Has anyone else had experience with any of these places? The fish store seemed to sell sushi grade fish and the grocery looked well stocked but we didn't have time to browse.
