Maison Kayser on 40th

June 8, 2014

St. Honore cake - 2

J's comment > what a disappointment after doing my research and advised that this was Maison Kayer's signature item; the choux was the worst I had ever had, completely dry w the extra hard caramelized topping; the only saving grace that bumped this from a 1 to a 2 was the cream, which whilst wasn't the best, was OK; Faubourg's play on the same item was much, MUCH better

Chocolate eclair - 1

J's comment > an insult to eclairs; same dry choux pastry as the St. Honore above.

Pastry Case (Menu, if you squint really hard)

Lovely treats to snack on @ Bryant Park just across the way... until you bite into it and then wish you could get your money back
