Ok, so they can't call them "cronuts." They call them "French donuts" instead, but they were still delicious to the last morsel. Best of all, there's no line for them. Tried to go to Dominique Ansel's place, got off the subway, and turned right around when I saw the line. But then here I was, walking down Broadway on a mini foodie tour between Zabar's and Fairway, took a peek inside this place, and there were raspberry and chocolate-filled cronuts... ahem, "French donuts" right in front of me! And it was something like 6PM too! Dominique Ansel's place sells out by 11AM. Of course it won't be quite as yummy at 6PM as in the morning when they're made, but it was still plenty yummy, even at 6PM. Just the fact that they even had it available at 6PM was a plus.
And yes, I did say this was Broadway. Apparently they now have two locations. I went to the one on Broadway at 77th. It just opened a week before, and I just happened to walk by. Talk about serendipity!
