Why We Love It: The kouign-amann. This classy downtown bakery comes from a pair of hands with a lofty pedigree. Belinda Leong, whose resumé is peppered with spots like Manresa, Gary Danko, and Pierre Hermé, attracted sweet tooths to her shop like moths to a flame when she opened, exercising some seriously polished pastry skills. If you're feeling saucy, get the kouign-amann for two (you heard that right).
