Amazing. On 9th Street between 5th and 6th Aves, there is now a bona fide pattiserie. It has the classic French breakfast pastries (and afew non-french standards, like sticky buns and open fruit danish). And there are french dessert pasties of various sizes, fruit strips and various chocolate concoctions. Those I have sampled have been a step behind Marquette, but the store is many steps closer. I hope they prosper.
