Dominique Ansel KITCHEN, the latest project from the lord of the cronuts himself, has opened in the West Village. And although you won't be able to find even a crumb of cronut to line up for at the new bakery concept, Ansel has flipped the typical bakery model on its head by operating like a restaurant kitchen so that most of the menu will be made and assembled to order.
The new bakery, with the horsepower of a restaurant, is located at 137 Seventh Avenue South between West 10th St and Charles St, and features an open kitchen so you can see the cooks slicing up the ham for your ham and cheese croissant or your cheese melting on a croque monsieur. The menu offers a pretty big variety of baked goods like Viennoiserie (think puff pastry but sweeter and better), pastries and desserts, savory food, and even vanilla bean ice cream.
Check out the some of the highlights from the menu, then meet us there immediately for that EGG-clipse:
