At the corner of 32nd Street and 5th Avenue, there is a magical spot called Besfren. It’s a small Korean pastry shop, and it’s the rare sort of place where the food is highly photogenic and also worth eating. Try an iced chiffon donut and leave with at least one triple chocolate cookie. You should also order some soft serve. We don’t care if it’s winter.
