Francois Payard at The Plaza Food Hall

One of my most favorite places is The Plaza Food Hall and FP Patisserie by Francois Payard 
These would make great gifts for family and friends OR for yourself, of course !! 
For the warmer months, they have ice cream sandwiches that are anything but ordinary. Brownie with vanilla and coconut mango were my favorites.  
The french macarons here are some of the BEST you will ever taste. A good place to pick up one if you are trying them for the first time.  
The apricot rosemary flavor is unique, but it does work.  
I am not a fan of strawberry, but this tart looks beautiful. Strawberries are very photogenic as that red color and glaze on top just pops out of the picture.  
A sweet little mini lemon tart  
I always call French pastries Works of Art because they are so pleasing to the eye.....and the palate.  
These little mini's are great to share with someone, or a few friends, just to sample some of these amazing treats  

My Aunt loved eclairs and she would have gone crazy for these flavors.  
Like the iconic palace in France, the Louvre is one of Francois' signature Payard pastries and a best seller from the very beginning. It's classic dome shape in the 4-10 pp size and gold leaf and chocolate decorations accent this beautiful work of art. Enrobed in a chocolate glaze is chocolate mousse and hazelnut mousse layered with a hazelnut dacquoise over a hazelnut wafer. 
The selection of candies available by Francois Payard  
Mr. Payard himself at work at the 2010 New York Chocolate Show and it was a great experience to see him at work in person. 

Many locations in the city, for those who love desserts, this is the place to visit in NYC !!
