Zucker Bakery
East Village
Israeli-born Zohar Zohar worked the line at Daniel and Bouley before opening this charming Eastern European and Mediterranean bakeshop. The homey space is decorated to approximate her grandmother's living room, with lace doilies draped over chairs and a vase of dried flowers set on a two-tier wood table. Her pastries—like date-clove rugalach, chocolate rolls and honey-almond cookies rolled in confectioners' sugar—are a collection of recipes from friends and family. Take yours with a Stumptown coffee to the white-and-blue-patterned couch by the sunny front window.
