Great croissants at Petrossian's

After having tried croissants at Ceci-Cela (mediocre), Balthazar (bad), Claude Patisserie (decent but not great), La Bergamote (decent but not great), Payard (decent but not great), Pret a Manger (surprisingly pretty decent...but not great), and Bouchon (decent but not great), I've finally found a really good croissant in NY. It is, compliments of Chowhounders who've recommended the place, at Petrossian's Cafe -- on 7th Ave. between 57th and 58th. I actually tried a pain au chocolat here, and it had a) a truly and delightfully flaky texture all the way through, b) a shatter effect, c) a butter flavor, d) adequate amounts of good chocolate. Bravo!

Stars: 5/5
