“The quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there. If I could find a real-life place that’d make me feel like Tiffany’s, then – then I’d buy some furniture and give the cat a name!” —Holly Golightly
Audrey Hepburn had breakfast at Tiffany’s to cure her mean reds. As for me, I have Bottega Louie. Whenever life gets to be too much of a drag, a brief interlude to the splendor in white and gold on Grand and 7th Street is all it takes to turn my day around.
The neat rows of rainbow hue macarons, dainty cupcakes and pristine baked goods has the uncanny ability to make me forget about my worries, even if for an hour.
Especially if I am tucking away a berry Dacquoise. It’s like a macaron, but 10 times bigger and better. It’s a cookie/cake hybrid made with a base of crispy hazelnut and almond meringue. Then, nestled in the middle is a perfectly sweetened vanilla cream (complete with bean flecks!). Then it’s topped by plump, juicy berries. It’s out of this world good.
