The nice weather has had some NYC restaurants setting up tables outside. Epicerie Boulud is no exception. I didn’t have time to linger in the sunshine at the high-top tables, so I got some cake slices to go: Gateau Basque, an almond tart with kirsch (cherry brandy) and a brioche with vanilla creme fraiche and crystallized sugar. As I walked, the cakes fell in the box. Some of the creme fraiche got onto the side of the box. I finally understand that cheese paper commercial of Hardee’s.
