Sweets Week: Day 5: La Bergamote

Enter my giveaway to win a copy of Susan Meisel’s new book, New York Sweets: A Sugarhound’s Guide to the Best Bakeries, Ice Cream Parlors, Candy Shops, and Other Emporia of Delicious Delights.

La Bergamote is a French bistro and patisserie with locations in Chelsea and one hidden away down an unsuspecting side street of Tenth Avenue in Clinton/Hell’s Kitchen.  I’d like to come back here some time for brunch in the cafe.  The patisserie has cakes, croissants, tarts and more.  I got a Paris-Brest, the choux pastry filled with cream and topped with powdered sugar and almond slivers that was named for a bicycle race between the cities Paris and Brest.

Paris-Brest

Verdict:  The custardy-creamy hazelnut-flavored filling and fresh pastry make for a delicious dessert.

  2. Oh my, that looks incredibly good! And the cream is hazelnut? Even better!

  3. Looks delish! I saw a recipe for this in the Bouchon Bakery cookbook, and now I have a desire to try to make it myself!
