Basket of freshly baked breads, croissants + pastries

with house made confiture (serves two) ($13)

 

Disclosure: This was a **COMP** from Chef Thuet. Thank you ever so kindly - this bread lover completely appreciated this gesture (and such a generous portion of carbs to pair with the 2 full appetizers and 2 mains our table ordered).

 

In the basket:

butter croissant (crisp, flaky outer layers, buttery soft interior layers; perfect with no large air pockets)

pain au chocolat - left for my dining companion

Raisin croissant (slight cinnamon sugar layer and juicy sweet raisins between the larger flaky spirals; very enjoyable and not too sweet)

Cherry danish - excellent - a flaky pastry boat holds a half dozen pump preserved Bing cherries and kissed by an apricot glaze. This one was hard to resist

 

Breads:

Baguette

Multigrain (7? 12 seed? LOL, DW how many did you throw into this one?)

Rye

Whole wheat country

 

It came with butter and homemade apricot/peach (and something else) spread.
