It is with great sadness that I report that Alcazar French pastry shop on 1st ave at 10th Street is no longer. I had just recently discovered their doughnuts which they made every morning -- soft, chewy, with crisp edges, a perfect crunch of granulated sugar, and filled with delicious fresh jam (raspberry, apricot) or cream (chocolate or custard).
So know, is there anywhere I can find equally delicious *jelly* doughnuts ? Don't say Krispy Kreme, cuz I know it ain't true..
ps. They also had delicious chicken sandwiches on fresh bread, smeared with lucious homemade mayonnaise (sob!)
pps. It's now another Italian pastry/sandwich shop, if you care..
