Bouchon Bakery (New York)

We end our New York series with a place I always visit every time I come.

Yes, I know I probably sound like a broken record at this point, especially considering that I’ve already written posts about its sister bakeries, both in Napa Valley and Las Vegas. But I really really like this bakery!

And, for the sake of completeness, I really should have all three on my blog, right?

Besides, who doesn’t want to look at pictures of more lovely and delicious baked goods? 😉

This Bouchon Bakery is located up on the third floor of the Time Warner Building one floor down from its famous cousin. Sound familiar? The original Bouchon Bakery is also located just down the street from its super famous cousin.

The lines are long, but manageable and move quickly!

It’s hard to decide what to get, but I like their TKOs (Thomas Keller Oreos), macarons (I’m boring but vanilla is actually my favorite!), and their bouchons (mini-chocolate cork shaped brownies).

Bryan likes the nutter butter (two peanut butter cookies with peanut butter cream in the center!) , chocolate croissant (excellent chocolate inside!), and the maple bacon scone (sweet and salty – soooo good!). Though I’ve hardly come close to trying all that they sell, everything I’ve had so far has been excellent. You wouldn’t expect anything less from Thomas Keller.

On the other side, you can order sandwiches and sit down for a casual lunch.

If you’ve already eaten (which I usually have),you can grab a baked good, a coffee, and wander the rest of the Time Warner Building. There always seems to be some sort of art exhibit going on, which is fun to explore. The last time we were there, they had a bunch of cool Dali art on display (and for sale!!! Does anyone want to spend $50k on a tree?).

I think this tree costs several hundreds of thousands of dollars . . . .

If you can’t finish everything while at the bakery, you can always take some to go.

Update: A NEWEST Bouchon Bakery just opened up at One Rockefeller Plaza! Looks like my trio of Bouchon posts is not complete! I must visit the fourth one the next time I’m in New York!

    Ooh, are you in Napa Valley right now??  HAVE FUN!! I absolutely love the area and always have tons of fun whenever I’m there. :)

    The one on Rockefeller Plaza has a daily different selection of macarons than the one on Columbus Circle. When I visited, I went to both to get maximum macaon fix! Have you tried the peanut butter and jelly? Vanilla was my favorite until I tasted the peanut butter and jelly.

    I’ve been following your blog for a long time and I love your NYC series. :) I went to NYC this past weekend and also stopped by Eleven Madison for lunch. It was phenomenal. We asked for a tour of the kitchen and not only did they gave our party of 4 a tour, the pastry chef set up a demo in the kitchen and made after lunch cocktails containing sorbet and “meringues” made with liquid nitrogen. You should definitely come back.

    I also went to Babbo and it was outrageous (minus some pasta dishes that were lackluster). You should definitely drop by Babbo if you’re in NYC. We got last minute reservations (though we called every day for a week before our trip).

    So funny — I’m in NY this weekend and just went to the Bouchon Bakery at Rockefeller Center. I really enjoyed the brioche — I plan on writing about it soon. It’s nice to have such a great option in Midtown.
