I've long contemplated trying Patisserie Colson on 9th Street and 6th Avenue, but the pain au chocolate and raspberry beignets from Almondine just up the block are so good... The other day I was in the mood for pain au chocolat and decided the time was right to give Colson a try...
The pastry lived up to the more flavorful promise. The light sweet glaze is very pleasant and it seemed to have more chocolate filling than your typically get with your standard pain au chocolat. For science, and of course for you, dear readers, I've returned several times since to, you know, check the quality and I can say that these have always been top notch and are now a favored treat around our place.
