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 HermÃ©, and staged at Fauchon in New York. Sheâ€™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.
