I know it’s expensive, but one of the reasons I adore Bouchon Bakery (Rock Center) is their adult take on favorite childhood desserts. This means a little bit more money, but my teeth don’t hurt and I don’t feel like I pumped my body full of partially hydrogenated cottonseed oil. I had heard about the Peppermint Paddy, but I never spied one when in one of the stores. It’s hard to miss, this green foil beacon of minty deliciousness.

Like we told you yesterday, Rock Center’s Bouchon Bakery debuted new sandwiches recently: a braised short rib on pain au lait, and a smoked turkey on multi-grain. The braised short rib clocks in at just under $10 pre-tax, involves a caramelized onion mousse, fontina, and roasted button mushrooms. I love mushrooms and short ribs, so I went for it.
I stopped into Bouchon Bakery at Rockefeller Center over the weekend and noticed that they’ve recently added two new sandwiches, including a braised shortrib on pan au lait ($9.95) and a smoked turkey on multi-grain baguette ($8.50). Both sandwiches looked hearty enough to stand up by themselves for a lunch, so we’ll definitely be back for a full review. In the meantime, if you’ve tried the new Bouchon Bakery sandwiches, please let us know what you think in the comments.

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, all of the ML contributors have turkey on our minds. And of course this wouldn’t be Midtown Lunch if we didn’t try to think outside of the generic deli turkey sandwiches box (hello, Thanksgiving pizza anyone?). So we polled a few of our contributors to recall some of their favorite Midtown turkey dishes.

If you are on the lookout for Halloween goodies and have a little extra to spend, Bouchon Bakery has some adorable bat versions ($3.25) of their TKO (Thomas Kellar Oreo). The TKO is made from a crunchy, buttery, extremely chocolatey sable cookie with a white chocolate ganache filling. It’s like an Oreo on steroids and you can’t help but smile at the bat shape.

Ever since Bouchon Bakery opened earlier this year, I’ve been having fun eating through the menu of sandwiches and sweets. I’d previously declared their tuna niçoise to be a fine sandwich, and I recently decided to splurge a bit for the slow roasted pork sandwich on a Dutch crunch roll ($11.25).
Last month, the highly anticipated Bouchon Bakery opened in Rockefeller Center, bringing high end pastries and sandwiches to the grateful lunchers of Midtown central. I waited a few weeks for the lines to die down, and in the meantime, began hearing my co-workers rave about the tasty, yet pricey sandwiches – the standouts being the slow roasted pork sandwich ($11.25) and the grilled cheese & tomato soup combo ($11.25). Spurred on by the favorable reviews, I finally stopped by to try these fancy pants sandwiches.
Yesterday, Eater NY got a sneak peek inside the new Bouchon Bakery in Rockefeller Center. It appears they will be offering the same menu as the Columbus Circle branch and everything will be made fresh in their two story kitchen, not trucked across town. It’s scheduled to open bright and early tomorrow morning, and I’m sort of jealous I no longer work down the block-they make a damn good sticky bun.
Good news for Bouchon Bakery fans who work closer to Rock Center than to Columbus Circle. Today the New York ‘Times reported that a new Bouchon Bakery will be taking over the Dean & Deluca that faces the rink in Rock Center. It makes sense, since they have another location right around the corner (on 48th btw. 5+6th). The new Bouchon Bakery will have outside seating when it’s nice, but no waiter service- and according to the article everything will be made in house.
