Almond Croissant Smack Down: Bien Cuit, Brooklyn, NY

Returning from a recent trip to Brazil, I was graced with a 12 hour layover a la JFK. Scrounging up the warmest clothes I brought with me (jean jacket and thick-ish leggings), I took the MTA into Brooklyn, ignoring the Delta agent's recommendation "...go to Manhattan... (you poor Yankee doodle fool)..."

As I got out of the metro all pumped with visions of East Coast hipsters, I passed only sad face homeless people shivering in the cold and the occasional scary man. Ducked into a Starbucks for some free electricity to calculate my next move: an almond croissant at Bien Cuit.

Now, this croissant is twice baked with brandy, hence the extra brown exterior. Upon breaking through the easy-to-shatter exterior, the interior reviles air and buttery-ness. The almond filling is dense as it is generous, with a modest amount of sweetness that allowed for appreciation of the almond flavor. I am warm again!
Bien Cuit's almond croissant is the real deal. They do it right. Go Brooklyn!
