Photo by myself at Stone Street and Hanover Square, in the Financial District.
I love this part of town near Wall Street, which has an 'ye olde' feeling about it.
Above, Financier is a fancy patisserie. Its name playfully alludes to the name of a French cake, as well as its location in the Financial District.
I regret not stepping inside, though I'm probably slimmer for it. Their assortment of elegant cakes and French pastries is impressive. Chocolate mousse cakes, sacher tortes, berry tarts and petit fours are just some of their decadent concoctions.
They also serve a large menu for breakfast and lunch, cater parties and create one-of-a-kind wedding cakes.
Lucky for everyone, they accept online orders, for pick up, only. (I doubt their perfect cakes would travel well in the US Mail).
