Bouchon Bakery at Rockefeller Center

We were on a vacation so we had a slow start on our 2nd day in New York City. After having the free buffet breakfast at the Residence Inn we walked along 5th Avenue towards Rockefeller Center.

The weather was nice and cool and perfect for a leisurely stroll.

I never knew that the Philippine Consulate in New York had such a swanky address.

Nice parols were their holiday decor.

The Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center was up when we were there last Nov. 27 although it wasn’t lighted up yet.

We were supposed to take a cab to Peter Luger for lunch but I wanted to stop by Bouchon Bakery first. My cousins didn’t even know it was there. They thought it was still Dean & Deluca. But I knew better since I always see it when I watch The Today Show in Manila.

After my first visit to Bouchon Bakery in Yountville I was lucky to have another chance to go to their other branch in New York City.

These peanut butter cups have been taunting me since Yountville. I was strong enough to resist. But once the DIET is over I’m going back for these babies.

They had numerous ready-to-go sandwiches that looked really good too.

We got one raspberry almond croissant and I tasted a little of it. I found that  the inclusion of raspberry preserves with almond paste made it too sweet. I prefer a plain almond croissant.

Naturally I bought my favorite scones, one savory and one seasonal. The savory scone contained smoked bacon, cheddar cheese and chives while the seasonal scone had candied walnuts, oats, cinnamon and honey butter. Both were delicious, crumbly, buttery and not dry. I liked the savory scone just a tad more.

Sharon bought a brioche while Lanneth chose the almond brioche. I’m not really a fan of brioche but I was able to try the almond brioche and it was heavenly. It reminded me of a French toast crossed with a custard bread.

I had to practice extreme self control not to buy this double chocolate chunk cookie.

This is mine and Sharon’s stash. I chose the scones and the rest were hers. We had them for breakfast the next day and the rest for our road trip back to Virginia. We should have bought more!!!

I wonder if there was a celebrity in the super stretch limo.
