Best new bakery: Momofuku Bakery & Milk Bar

OTHER NOMINEES: Batch, Butter Lane, Sweet Revenge

The milky detritus at the bottom of a cereal bowl isn't the most conventional inspiration for a bakery, but Christina Tosi isn't exactly the most conventional pastry chef. Jelly-doughnut soft-serve, crack pie, compost cookies, Gorgonzola bread and, of course, cereal milk have cemented Tosi's reputation as the city's most charmingly deranged sugar sorceress. Momofuku Milk Bar East Village 207 Second Ave at 13th St (entrance on 13th St) (212-254-3500)
