Profile

When Jacques Torres learned that his landlord intended to lease the space across the cobblestone street from his bustling Dumbo shop to a rival baker, the crafty chocolatier hatched a plan of his own. Torres recruited partner Hervé Poussot, formerly a pastry chef at Le Bernardin and Windows on the World, and persuaded the developer to lease the storefront to them. Under Poussot's conspiratorial supervision, Almondine sells organic bread (baked thrice daily), muffins, and brioche, as well as pastries that span the Franco-American spectrum, from macaroons to brownies. Machiavellian maneuvering, perhaps, but who'd complain, considering the just desserts?
