Prior to opening Patisserie Fouet in Union Square, owner and executive chef Yoshie Shirakawa had already won awards as a pastry chef, taught classes at a culinary school in Tokyo, and worked as the executive pastry chef at Dessert Cafe Luxee and Bohemian in New York. This is what suffering from success actually looks like (take notes DJ Khaled). At Patisserie Fouet, Shirakawa’s Japanese and French flavors really shine in her jar desserts, particularly the soba pudding and green tea tiramisu that work great for takeout. They also offer covered and heated outdoor seating, which is perfect when I’m looking for a cute weekend sit-down spot for afternoon tea.
