Croissant Battle: Maison Giraud vs. Chaumont

J.L. | Nov 24, 2013 01:26 AM

Just tried the relative newcomer's croissant at Chaumont (in Beverly Hills; croissant is pictured) last week. Comparing it with my current croissant fave at Maison Giraud (in Pacific Palisades):

Butteriness: The edge goes to Maison Giraud.

Bite: Chaumont has a slight advantage.

Flakiness: Gotta hand it to Chaumont.

Aroma: Maison Giraud wins in this category.

"French"ness (for lack of a better phrase): A virtual tie.

It's too close for me to call. Someone else cast the deciding vote. I suppose we're fortunate to have this problem here in L.A...
