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