Haute pastry whiz Tomoko Kato (Bouley Bakery, Le Bernardin) crosses the bridge for this dessert tasting menu restaurant spotlighting French-Japanese confections. Snag a seat at the eight-seat horseshoe-shaped bar for a three-course prix fixe including an amuse-bouche, a choice of sweet (black-sesame crème brûlée, green-tea cheesecake tart) and petits fours like namachoko (a Japanese truffle-like confection). The pastries can be paired with wine, Toby's Estate coffee or In Pursuit of Tea brews. A to-go counter offers custom cakes, savory breads (potato-zucchini focaccia) and cookies (caramel-walnut sandwiches, mango macarons).
