TGIF! So if you’re looking for a nice place to take a break, and are in the NYC area, we suggest you head over to Financier Patisserie. This spot is part of Peter Poulakakos’ restaurant empire that includes Bayard’s (where we hold many FTF events), Ulysses‘, Adrienne’s Pizza Bar, Harry’s Cafe and Harry’s Steak, Harry’s Italian and Vintry.
For those who haven’t visited the flagship Stone Street location or any of their many other locations, Financier Patisserie specializes in traditional and signature French pastries and has a great selection of espresso and coffees. Personally, I would suggest the French macarons and/or the financiers. I’m salivating just thinking about them! Also, to sweeten the experience, I love going here for a cup of tea or coffee because every time you get a drink, they give you a mini-financier on the side.
So really, while you may be one of many who run on Dunkin or hit the nearest Starbucks (because who doesn’t know of at least four Starbucks locations in a two block radius) but next time you are out looking for a nice place to have your coffee break just ask yourself “do those places give you a mini-financier to go?” No, I don’t think they do. And “do those places have goodies that look like this?”….
No, I don’t think they do.
So I would suggest you find a location near you here and check them out soon!
Have a great weekend!
