A Couple of Tarts

We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink, for dining alone is leading the life of a lion or wolf. ~ Epicurus

Downtown Sugar Fix

So S. and I got back from spending days sitting on the beach to this lovely April weather. I have to say, it makes me miss California. It also makes me want to curl up at home on the couch and not take a step outside.

Fortunately, there so many little gems to discover all around NYC, that I can be persuaded to venture out on a cold, rainy day.

Especially when dessert is involved.

S. is getting married and despite years of promises, I am not making her wedding cake due to the other obligations of being maid of honor. So instead she took me to the bakery/cafe that is doing the honor so we could sample some of their pastries.

Financier is a welcoming respite in Lower Manhattan, near Wall Street. It is on the cobblestoned Stone Street and was bright and cheery despite the greyness outside. We tried their chocolate mousse cake, which was definitely a winner. The sacher torte wowed us less, but their coffee was satisfying and came with a mini financier (of course), which RFC enjoyed later on that night.

It's good to know there is such a place to duck into in that area.
