Those toting a sweet tooth and an adventurous palette, take note. Les Jardins de la Duchesse is ready to open up your wallet and take the money. The specialized bakery – located at 138 Orchard Street – began service this morning after a six-month build-out, and promises to “awaken the senses” with its menu of treats.
As first reported in October, the Duchesse will offer an eclectic selection of eclairs both sweet (six flavors) and savory (four flavors). Eclair choices include bacon-wrapped goat cheese, salmon and wasabi, and standards like chocolate and vanilla. The shop will prepare four to six batches during the day alongside coffee choices (plus hot and cold beverages).
Les Jardins de la Duchesse is the handiwork of money man Thomas Cardaccia and formerly Swiss-based pastry chef Antoine Pelhate.
