Nonfat Latte + Chocolate-Almond Croissant
The morning after the Lady Gaga concert, I found myself with some time to kill on my own. I took advantage of being in a great location and headed over to Bouchon Bakery to see if I could get something that I didn't get on my last visit there.
I got there mid-morning, which might have contributed to the somewhat lacking quantity of breakfast items. I love sweets any time of the day, but I wanted it to have some semblance of a morning food, haha. Hence, the chocolate-almond croissant above. The croissant had the great shatter of a classic flaky croissant crust, and an even schmear of thick chocolate in the middle. I couldn't eat it all but it was a perfect way to start the morning.
The Namesake: Chocolate Bouchon
Yes, it was mid-morning, but I couldn't resist! The tiny little chocolate bouchons looked so cute, and I didn't get this last time, so I picked up two for E and I to try later in the day. For being so small, these are PACKED with decadent chocolate! I could easily see myself polishing off a half-dozen of these at once, eek!
Bouchon Bakery is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to try out new treats, especially in the morning. If I personally had one of these near me, that would be so so so dangerous. But for now, I will undoubtedly enjoy their offerings as much as my schedule allows when I'm in NYC :o)
