When John Besh's pastry rock stars decide to open a bakery, you best pay attention. Kelly Fields and Lisa Marie White's sugar-coated outpost in the Paramount Building is both a café and a purveyor of every conceivable kind of baked good, neither of which will steer you wrong. During Carnival season, the must-order is the jaw-dropping king cake, filled with bananas, salted caramel, mascarpone cheese, gooey caramello and a pecan praline-crusted top with edible gold flake. It's totally over the top, but, hey, so is Mardi Gras.
