I try to refrain from blogging about the same place twice, but when I can’t stop thinking about a restaurant you deserve to hear me sing its praises. Dominique Ansel Bakery is my favorite bakery in the City, maybe even my favorite bakery of all the bakeries there ever were. This is huge considering how obsessed I’ve been with Milk Bar over the years. I still love Milk Bar and see it as a close second, but Monsieur Ansel has secured a special place in my heart.
The soufflé part of the magic soufflé is chocolate grand marnier flavored and is encased in an orange blossom brioche. I’m not big on orange desserts but the flavor is not overpowering and it’s not too sweet, which is good because I have a theory that super sweet desserts are trying to compensate for something. I ate the whole thing in the street like an animal and feel no shame.
