Chokolat Patissery? Bway btw La Salle & 125

HLing | Mar 4, 200706:01 PM     2

Just walked by this little shop today. Someone had told me of this place opening up about a month ago, but I was out of town. I couldn't find any post or even their phone number online, (should have taken a card with me today) probably because they're so new. It's a tiny but elegant place. Opened til 11:30 pm on week nights, til 9;30 on Sunday nights. The plain and the chocolate croissants were both delicious! They were more dense, but not in a bready way. There's a very pleasant sweetness to it that lasted the whole croissant, unlike how some others have an leathery flavorless chew that are better for use in sandwiches and not good by themselves. Or another variation where you think someone must have used salted butter (!!) to make the croissant. No, not this one. The plain one passed the sweet butter and jam test for me. The chocolate had perfect sweetness as well as good proportion of Chocolate to croissant, although it was a rather hefty chocolate croissant compare to most...This is defintely a welcomed addition to the Manhattan School of Music and Columbia U neighborhood.

Still, I would like the opinions of the croissant experts out there..
