Where: Arcade Bakery
220 Church Street, New York, NY 10013
Why: French baker Roger Gural is a master.
What: One key to a great croissant is to make sure it is fresh out of the oven. You never have to worry about that at Arcade Bakery, located inside the lobby of an office building at 220 Church Street. But Roger Gural’s croissants have something extra that is hard to explain, but when you taste it you know there isn’t anything else like this in New York.
