2008_10_hasmaps.jpgA tall slice of cake, a buttery biscuit, tufts of sweet meringue atop a citrus custard -- these are some of life's most blessed pleasures. Forget, for a moment, the doughnuts, the cupcakeries, and the strip mall cookie shops. Here, Eater takes a close look and careful taste of pastry shops across the city. In order to qualify, shops must give special attention to a wide variety of pastries and excel at more than a dozen different types. All of these shops employ an individual dedicated to pastry making, though the business may also make or serve bread, savory dishes, and plated desserts. Without exception, these establishments are using high-fat butter, real cream, and seasonal ingredients. Enjoy.
