It’s a good thing I don’t live close to the new B. Patisserie in San Francisco’s lower Pacific Heights neighborhood — or I’d be 300 pounds.
If I lived within walking distance, it would be a far, far dangerous thing.
That’s because these are pastries worth every single calorie.
Pastry Chef Belinda Leong and business partner Michel Suas have created a very special place.
That’s because Suas, founder of the San Francisco Baking Institute, is a master of bread, which star in the bakery-cafe’s open-faced tartine sandwiches. And Leong knows her way with butter, having trained in Paris with Pierre Hermé, and staged at Fauchon in New York. She’s also headed the dessert side of the kitchen at Manresa and Gary Danko restaurants.
The result is the perfect neighborhood bakery that feels like a slice of Paris.
