It sounds like a lot of people are heading to New York soon, so I’m going to mention a handy book. This was recommended by both Niko, who reviewed it on Dessert Buzz and Taneka, who pulled it out of her backpack while we were waiting for the subway train. It covers not only bakeries, but desserts served at restaurants. You can order it off Amazon new or used. The used copies are less than $2.00.
