Petits Fours

Chikalicious Dessert Club sells them, but only as a custom order you have to place ahead of time. The minimum is a dozen of each kind.

Lunch tasting menus

Are there any other places other than Bouley and Gramercy Tavern that offer tasting menus for lunch? Not looking for prix fixe, but a tasting menu.

Thanks!

your recommendations for West Village and Meatpacking/Chelsea

I've been obsessed with Buvette in the West VIllage. I'm working through the menu.

Shortbread

I just came across your post since I was also looking for freshly baked shortbread cookies. I think I found a place! Beurre & Sel sells sabl├ęs, which are French shortbreads.

Maison Keyser pn the UES: any reports?

The food was really good (had the roast beef tartine) and loved the bread basket, but the pastries were just ok.

I also had the fondant chocolate, the round, chewy chocolate brownie-like cake that "coasts" had and I didn't like it at all and didn't finish it.

I'll have to go back for the croissants and see how that is.

NYC Personal Chef?

There's a site called KitchenSurfing.com where you can hire chefs for events or for what you're looking for.

I have a brunch for 7 planned with a chef for next weekend and the process was pretty easy.

Looking for the best high tea in Manhattan . . . .

I really like the Pembroke Room, but my favorite is St. Regis. Just went to the Ritz Carlton and the afternoon tea service there was solid.
