Hello Fellow NYC Chowhounders, I'm back!!

For my upcoming short trip to your great city, thanks to all your valuable inputs, I have finalized my Michelin 'chow choices' to the following:

- Eleven Madison Park
- Gramercy Tavern
- Marea
- Momofuku Ko
- Tori Shin

Since I also have a huge sweet tooth, I intend to use some of my spare time in visiting some of the best French Pastry establishments in town. However, having lived and worked in Paris for a couple of years, I have developed quite a discerning taste for French Pastries. Does NYC has any pastry shops close to the calibre of say a Laduree, Lenotre, Fouchon or Pierre Hermes of Paris?! I would love to hear a few suggestions from fellow fraternity members!
As well, apart from Eataly, which other 'gourmet food store(s)' I should pay a 'must' visit? Citerella, Dean & Deluca ( which location?), Zabars, Russ & Daughters????

Thank you all in advance!!
