(Continuation of thread on Manhattan board)
La Marjolaine, on Skillman Ave. near 50th Street or so, has wonderful almond croissants, as HLing pointed out. I also think their plain croissants are among the best in the city. I have not eaten anything else there except the bread, which was lousy, and I have a vague memory of maybe trying a Linzer Tart and being unimpressed. Has anyone got more info on their offerings?
