Best almond croissants?

Hands down: Tartine - W. 11 and W 4th st (if you are local you know they do cross!) - OUTRAGEOUSLY good. Toothsome. Unctuous. Addictive.

Advice for making Bo Ssam (Aka Korean pork shoulder)

Just a quick suggestion for the caramelization process. I've made this twice now, and the first time the sugar didn't caramelize (but the dish was still delicious). The second time, however, I sprinkled a little water over the sugar, which seemed to make all the difference. the caramelization was luscious, and took the whole experience to a whole new level. In my opinion, the caramelization is key.

Looking for Best Almond Croissant

Tartine on W. 4th and W.11th st (yes they do cross!) is hands down the most delectable, euphoria-inducing almond croissant I have ever had anywhere on in NYC or the world. Sweet and just-gooey-enough on the inside, flaky, crunchy on the outside. And very big! Limited quantities - sells out early (especially on weekends).

This is for a potential client, but they will definitely be put off by something too fancy.trendy - need low key but solid food. Ideas?
