New York


Francois Payard has been making pastries since he was a child in his grandfather's bakery, so it's no wonder his eponymous French bakery has reached international chain status. At the Battery Park outpost of FPB, the rustic-themed branch of his empire, you'll find the macarons that he's famous for as well as sandwiches on crispy baguettes, croissants, and beautifully-decorated pastries that Marie Antoinette would die for.
