Many moons ago when I was in college, my girlfriend (now Mrs. GutterGourmet) took me to the original Balducci's and turned me on to pain au chocolat, literally "chocolate bread." Croissants were already popular (my Mom's came frozen from the supermarket courtesy, Sara Lee), but chocolate croissants were a relative novelty in the early 80's. Now hopelessly addicted, I have made it my mission to scope out the best pain au chocolat in New York City. We currently have an embarrassment of riches.

Financier Patisserie
This rapidly expanding chain (recently opened on Astor Place) makes a respectable classic-shaped chocolate-filled croissant.

Falai Panetteria
This shop on Clinton on the Lower East Side makes a chocolate cornetto which contains a chocolate butter cream filling which, while delicious, almost has to be disqualified on two counts. One, it's Italian, and two for tasting more like a cupcake.

Balthazar
Of course, this SoHo staple turns out excellent versions.

Ceci-Cela
Just up the block from Balthazar, this narrow little bakery puts out a fantastic rendition that is among the best in the city.

Francois Payard Bakery
Francois Payard's new bakery on Houston makes consistently perfect crescent shaped croissants but with a little less chocolate (though he makes up for it in his éclairs and macaroons).

Jacques Torres
Speaking of chocolate, Torres' factory on King Street, makes fluffy chocolate croissants for dipping in a wicked hot chocolate.

La Bergamote
This classic French patisserie in Chelsea serves a very serviceable pain au chocolate.

Amy's Bread
Amy's Bread in Hell's Kitchen (Chelsea Market and Bleecker Street) make de rigueur versions.

Bouchon Bakery
Not to be out-Frenched, American-born Monsieur Keller bakes a fine pain au chocolat in the Time Warner Center.

New York City's Best Pain Au Chocolat

The above renditions are good, but the best pain au chocolat outside Paris (and perhaps even better than several I've had in Paris) belongs to Patisserie Claude on West 4th Street. Rosy cheeked, button nosed Claude has a belly that shakes like jelly when he laughs. He eschews the quarter moon crescent shaped chocolate croissant for the rectangular more bread-like pain au chocolat.

Still flaky with a thousand buttery layers, this is the Platonic version — just the right chocolate-to-bread ratio. Far from being Pere Noël, Claude used to be rather gruff. I was thrown out years ago for talking on my phone while on line. "No pain au chocolat for you!"

But today, in semi-retirement, Claude is a bit more jolly, shouting "Bonjour Monsieur" whenever he sees me with my nose pressed up against the glass peeking in to check whether a warm baking pan of pain au chocolat has just been taken out of the oven and slid into the pastry case to insure the chocolate inside is still in that ethereal state of being between solid and liquid. Joyeux Noël Claude!

“It’s a reward for the effort and love you put into it every day.” Emiliano Orantes is walking on air. Head baker at Financier Pâtisserie, he and his team have just won the Best Croissant in New York award.

“I started all the way at the bottom of the ladder, but the company gave me the opportunity to learn and grow. Receiving this award is an honor,” he explains. Launched in 2002 on historic Stone Street, near Wall Street, Financier has several locations across Manhattan and offers a full menu of French pastries and cakes, including the famous financiers.

After the success of the Best Baguette contest organized in January 2016 in New York City, won by Maison Kayser, French Morning returned on Saturday with the first edition of the Best Croissant competition.

Fifteen artisan bakers nominated by over a thousand of our readers took part in this grand finale, at the 5th&Mad restaurant in Midtown. It was a real success, with more than 700 people making the trip for this gourmet event.

Five judges had the difficult task of selecting the best of the competing croissants via blind taste-test. Among the judges was Gabriel Kreuther, president of the jury and chef of a Michelin-starred Manhattan restaurant. “A good croissant is a crispy, flakey puff pastry. But when you pull on it, the coils must unroll slowly. This is a sign that the dough has been well made and that the butter to dough ratio is balanced.”

Two other awards were given during the event. After receiving the Prix du Public (People’s Choice Award) for the best baguette in 2016, Choc-O-Pain went on to win the public’s support for its croissant. “The teamwork we had to have to bring these products in today is crazy. Just like the teamwork we have every day in the bakery,” says French baker Clémence Danko, founder of the New Jersey bakery.

A third prize was awarded by the jury for the best pain au chocolat. It was awarded to Maison Kayser and its baker Yann Ledoux. “It’s an honor. I think we’ve been able to pass on the savoir-faire to our American teams successfully.”

After the success of the Best Baguette contest organized in January 2016 in New York City, won by Maison Kayser, French Morning returned on Saturday with the first edition of the Best Croissant competition.

Fifteen artisan bakers nominated by over a thousand of our readers took part in this grand finale, at the 5th&Mad restaurant in Midtown. It was a real success, with more than 700 people making the trip for this gourmet event.

Five judges had the difficult task of selecting the best of the competing croissants via blind taste-test. Among the judges was Gabriel Kreuther, president of the jury and chef of a Michelin-starred Manhattan restaurant. “A good croissant is a crispy, flakey puff pastry. But when you pull on it, the coils must unroll slowly. This is a sign that the dough has been well made and that the butter to dough ratio is balanced.”

Two other awards were given during the event. After receiving the Prix du Public (People’s Choice Award) for the best baguette in 2016, Choc-O-Pain went on to win the public’s support for its croissant. “The teamwork we had to have to bring these products in today is crazy. Just like the teamwork we have every day in the bakery,” says French baker Clémence Danko, founder of the New Jersey bakery.

A third prize was awarded by the jury for the best pain au chocolat. It was awarded to Maison Kayser and its baker Yann Ledoux. “It’s an honor. I think we’ve been able to pass on the savoir-faire to our American teams successfully.”
