When it comes to Soho, we’ve all come to expect the same thing; glamorous Europeans with Birkin bags and amazing artwork being sold on the corner next to Chanel. Since the fall of 2011, French Chef Dominique Ansel has blown New Yorkers away with the ‘Cronut.’ It’s basically a deep fried croissant, covered in sugar and filled with different kinds of cream, flavors changing every month.
The Cronut has gotten global attention, and this small downtown bakery has become a must-see for tourists. If you’re in the area and want to experience the hype, make sure to get there early. With a two-donut limit per person and only so many made a day, only a special few will get to experience its sweet magic.
