If we could hand out awards for crispiest cannoli or tastiest tri-color cake, we’d roll out a red carpet on Arthur Avenue and hire the ghost of Joe Franklin as host. But we can’t (just yet), so we’ll tell you the first place we go when we’re forced to choose between the many excellent pastry shops in the area. Artuso has everything from pignoli and tiramisu to lemon rolls and lobster tails filled with light, airy cream. Yes, you want powdered sugar on top. Things run out by the evening, so stop by for coffee in the morning and call first dibs on the best biscotti (almond). If these cannolis aren’t quite as crispy as you’d like, try the ones at Egidio, Gino’s, or Morrone. You really can’t go wrong around here.
