You should have seen the original D&D in NY before it is in its big digs on bdwy. They had almost no fresh produce. This was way back in the '80s. but they had the best pastry.

oh and Marriage Freres. can't beat it. You know it can be cheaper to order it directly from them from france than finding it in stores here.


Gabriella, I'm such a serious Mariages Freres addict. I now have friends who live in Paris shipping it to me every few months. Thank God we're going back to Paris in September for a family vacation!


I am going to hit CH with my purse for not letting me go into D&D when we were in Napa. He did the same thing to me in NYC. Wouldn't let me go into Otto Tootsie Ploughound even though it was literally across the street from the hotel we were staying at!



Bad Chubby Hubby! Bad Chubby Hubby! On the other hand, I can own sweet Hubby gets an intense look of fear in his eyes whenever we start approaching a D&D. It must be because he knows I will spend at least an hour wandering around and another selecting items to purchase. He's much more into mission-specific shopping: need it, get it. No wandering. How boring! I hope you get to go soon; it's so fun!
