Food Wine and Spirits Miss Metropolitan Junkie Urban Aristocrats What's Hot in N.Y.C.


So I stopped at a few bakeries, including the Bouchon Bakery in Rockefeller Center, to discover that sugar cookies aren’t as available as I thought they would be. I exchanged dialogue with a staff member at the Bouchon Bakery –

“Do you have sugar cookies?”
“No, unfortunately, we don’t.”
“But it’s National Sugar Cookie Day!  How could you not have sugar cookies?”
“Sugar cookies are American, this is a French Bakery.”

At the end of our exchange, I somehow ended up purchasing a TKO, which is supposed to be their French version of the Oreo cookie.  The cookie is apparently named  after the creator.  The cookie is o.k., not much to rave about.  I asked the staff member if he knew of any other bakeries in the neighborhood that sold sugar cookies; he graciously directed me to Magnolia Bakery down the street.  At Magnolia, I was able to purchase a delicious sugar cookie at .75, which was nice compared to the $3.25 TKO I  purchased at Bouchon.
