Bouchon Bakery

Pastry addicts, take note: Bouchon Bakery remains one of the best places to fortify yourself for a long walk in Central Park. Spend a few minutes admiring the meticulous technique of the rotating selection of confections, such as the miniature takes on Ho Hos, and flaky almond-paste-filled croissants. Don't leave without trying the famous TKO cookies, Thomas Keller's incredibly rich, sophisticated cousin of an Oreo.
