Bouncing around NYC like a ping pong, Chef Thiago is the current undisputed innovator in the dessert scene until Dominique Ansel figures out his followup to the Cronut. His #HitMe dessert completely demolished the Internet a few months back, and now he’s serving up innovative dessert dishes at Union Fare, a gastro hall in the historic intersection in Manhattan.
Walk inside and you might just catch a glimpse of a pleasantly balanced Birthday Cake Croissant.
And here’s what our resident NYC eating champion Jessica of @CheatDayEats had to say about the croissant:
The #BirthdayCakeCroissant is Chef Thiago’s (@chef_thiago) latest innovation. The croissant is being dished out of the Union Fare Restaurant (@unionfare) in NYC where he’s running the bakery and channelling all the desserts. In this video, we see our main gal Jess (@CheatDayEats) busting it wide open. “He’s a genius,” Jessica tells us. It’s not extremely sweet, “I was kinda surprised. He mixed the sprinkles into the batter, which [Thiago] says has never seen anyone else do.”
