Read on for more tasty food and drink specials here for the month. For more ideas, check out our full food and drink calendar.
The beloved bakery promises an abundance of Valentine’s Day-themed sweets, including house-made chocolates, caramel vanilla heart cookies, the “Rosé All Day” (milk chocolate and rose mousse with a raspberry rose gelée center on a cardamom shortbread cookie, with white chocolate glaze and candied rose petals), the “Sakura” (vanilla and cherry blossom bavarois layered between limoncello-soaked lemon chiffon cake with pink cocoa butter), the “Aphrodite” (lemon fromage blanc mousse with raspberry strawberry gelée, strawberry-brushed lemon chiffon glaze, strawberry raspberry coulis, mini madeleines, and rose petals), a chocolate raspberry mousse dome, and sugar cookies in the likeness of sassy conversation hearts and love notes. They’re also reprising their ever-popular, glitzy King Cake, decked out in colorful sugar, this week until Mardi Gras (Tuesday, February 25). And beginning on Tuesday, February 11, they’ll also be frying up paczki (Polish filled doughnuts traditionally served for Mardi Gras), filled with chocolate, vanilla bean, raspberry, lemon, strawberries and cream, or caramel apple and covered in powdered sugar or glaze.
