Driving to Malibu a few times this month and remembered hearing about this lovely place on CH but had never tried it. I usually fly through the Palisades on Sunset and once in awhile I'll stop by Gelson's.
Yesterday, I parked in front of Maison Giraud, walked in and quietly ordered their beloved chocolate croissant, that so many have talked about on these threads.
It's become a rarity for me to eat something, anything, and feel so satisfied with it that no matter how many calories or how much butter they use or whatever decadence they've decided to incorporate, I'll not care and continue to come back for more.
It's that good. It's been a long time since I've had a croissant that fabulous.
I also decided to order the poached eggs. They're perfectly poached with a side of some of the best toasted baguette I've had in years. Maison Giraud takes it all to another level.
Thanks CH's for the rec...
