Looking at a map of Manhattan, you’d have to call Yorkville the Rive Droite. That makes sense: The fresh-baked pastries at Rive Gauche move in the right direction. By-the-book boulangerie breads cover flaky baguettes; grainy peasant loaves; seductive pains au chocolat; and glistening, fluted brioches. Beautifully presented fruit tarts are solid, while cookies and cupcakes are equally tempting. A handful of tables invite patrons for a café au lait or lunch. Non-dessert items include sandwiches, make-your-own salads, and exceptional quiches made with onion, broccoli, spinach, and mushrooms.
