For years Petrossian Cafe has been my go-to neighborhood bakery. Of course, I have been spoiled. With the flakiest croissants and the most decadent chocolaty, double-chunk cookie, I have been a loyal patron to enjoy it all. They also have a delightful lunch menu with a number of egg dishes and a bountiful Smoked Salmon Cobb Salad. It is only a sample of the main restaurants main specialties; smoked salmon and caviar. This day in particular I needed some flaky pastries.
What better than an Almond Croissant lightly dusted with confectioners sugar. Yum! The outside crispy and crackly, a perfect shell for buttery layers inside.
I also can not forget, my favorite, the Apricot Pinwheel. Four triangle layers of flaky croissant are attached to a center of a sweet, apricot.
The color of the apricot is the way a fresh yolk should look like and with a bite, the center oozes, softening, spilling onto the layers of crust. It is a joyful experience and one I will miss when I am away at school.
