☞ EAT: Chokolat Patisserie
This West Harlem patisserie is less than two years old but already has some of the best pastries that one will find in Manhattan. Once more, the secret is the butter used in baking their croissants and "pain au chocolat," which are indeed the most moist confections to be found anywhere. The seating space is quite limited, so take out for some coffee and a bite-to-go is a very popular option. Located at 3111 Broadway between LaSalle and 123rd Street. Tel. (212) 662-6096. Take the 1 train to 125th Street or 116th Street and stop by before heading to Riverside Park.
