Anyone recommend a cafe/bakery that makes great savory tarts?

Thanks, I actually just recently heard of them and had been curious to check them out. We'll definitely keep them in mind for next year.

cheers

thank you everyone for the suggestions. i will keep those in mind for next year. the hubby was in cobble hill yesterday and ran across a new french pastry shop/cafe on smith that evidently can do the tarts so we're picking up from there today.

to the question about the definition of a savory tart, i really don't know, but since we've been getting them for years from once upon a tart in soho (and can't this year) perhaps their website would shed more insite www.onceuponatart.com. Based on taste alone, I'd say tarts are denser - definitely not fluffy like a quiche, consequently thinner, and typically the veggies, ham, etc, are cooked on top of the 'pie' rather than mixed in. Very tasty stuff and we aren't ever allowed to arrive at our inlaws at christmas without a few in hand. So hopefully this french place in CH will come through. Happy holidays!

thanks for the tip, however, they are the first place we thought of and they evidently don't do them. We also checked marquet and cousin john's and no dice.

For many years we've brought Once Upon a Tart savory tarts out to the holiday family gathering in LI and they're always a hit. However, now that we have two little ones, we're finding it difficult to find time to get into the city on weekends. I've had no luck googling or searching the OB boards for recommendations so if anyone has a place they love in Brklyn Hts, DUMBO, Prospect Hts, Ft Greene, Park Slope, Boerum Hill or Carroll Gardens/CobbleHill area, please let me know.

happy holidays
